Zon island

LeaderJohn Wallace


The MP of Zon island is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by John Wallace with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 9.645 billion Zon islandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Turtle city. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Zon islandian economy, worth 435 trillion marks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 45,154 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, ten-year-olds are applying for lemonade stand operator licences, urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens, and glamping Zon islandians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zon island's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Zon island is ranked 256,112th in the world and 175th in Thaecia for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.36 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
