The Democratic States of Zombodice is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Zombo with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.329 billion Zombodiceans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mars. The average income tax rate is 20.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zombodicean economy, worth a remarkable 2,873 trillion Gaias a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 215,588 Gaias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Zombodicean politicians, a byzantine web of conspiracies and secret alliances must be navigated any time legislation is voted upon, and pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zombodice's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Powerful Zombo.

Zombodice is ranked 67,412th in the world and 3,587th in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 34.47 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
