The Democratic States of Zombodice is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Zombo with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.435 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 13.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Zombodicean economy, worth a remarkable 2,660 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 213,951 Gaias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Many friends and relatives of Zombo have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. 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 123,993rd in the world and 6,830th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 660.23 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
