The Floridaman of Zoran is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Security Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, ritual sacrifices, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.674 billion Zoranians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zoradia. The average income tax rate is 46.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zoranian economy, worth 210 trillion Zorallas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 78,802 Zorallas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Federal Council of Zoran has been announced as the new Head of State, open-heart surgery is taught in seminaries, gossip magazines are more interested in astrological stars than celebrity ones, and explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Zoran's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Zonethos.

Zoran is ranked 7,430th in the world and 143rd in the West Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring 103.46 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
