The CURE of Zombie 0 is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Lampard with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, disturbing lack of elderly people, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.528 billion Zombie 0ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Madrona. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Zombie 0ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,481 trillion marks a year, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 226,942 marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 675,775 per year while the poor average 59,715, a ratio of 11.3 to 1.

Chekhov's guns are killing the entertainment budget, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, and the art of conversation has been rediscovered. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zombie 0's national animal is the cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Chelseaism.

Zombie 0 is ranked 267,365th in the world and 885th in NationStates for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3.37 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
