The United Socialist States of Zollias is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 8.763 billion Zolliasians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Zolliasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,390 trillion Ration Tickets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 158,629 Ration Tickets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and when flight control tells pilots to alter course the usual reply is "No, YOU move!". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zollias's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zollias is ranked 270,608th in the world and 66th in The Internationale for Most Devout, with 2.77 prayers per hour.
