The Free Land of Zontatrephlystankerg is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avant-garde cinema, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.1 billion Zontatrephlystankergians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 42.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Zontatrephlystankergian economy, worth 32.6 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 29,629 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

All beauty contests have been banned, calling dibs is an unalienable right, sex changes are routinely performed at Zontatrephlystankerg's hospitals, and Leader's family members carry literal get-out-of-jail-free cards. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zontatrephlystankerg's national animal is the bird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Zontatrephlystankerg is ranked 107,355th in the world and 3rd in Den for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,443.65 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
