The Psychotic Depravity of Zombie 8 is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Jessies Girl with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.306 billion Zombie 8ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Administration, although Law & Order, Industry, and Defense are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastrop. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zombie 8ian economy, worth a remarkable 2,401 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 195,171 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are encouraged to show displeasure with politicians by poking them with sharp metal sticks, the hardest thing for a mining operation to dig through is government red tape, being Jessies Girl has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, and the nation thirsts for new freedoms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zombie 8's national animal is the tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Critical Thinking.

Zombie 8 is ranked 45,378th in the world and 301st in NationStates for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 130.35 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
