The Confederacy of Zolehen is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 7.874 billion Zolehenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Zolehenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,123 trillion Kroner a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 269,705 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The news is showing footage of Leader bullying an old man to the point of tears, owning a fishing rod can cause you to be subject to military questioning, hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zolehen's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zolehen is ranked 205,664th in the world and 6,518th in the Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -13.65 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
