The Florida Man of Zoran is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Grand Security Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, ritual sacrifices, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.648 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zoradia. The average income tax rate is 55.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zoranian economy, worth 380 trillion Zorallas a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 81,872 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 214,413th in the world and 6,815th in the West Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.73 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
