The Red empire of Zorpland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Profit of Zorp with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, complete lack of prisons, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.625 billion Readonablists are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Spirituality, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pawnee. The average income tax rate is 53.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Zorplandian economy, worth 251 trillion Pancreass of Chicken a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 154,959 Pancreass of Chicken, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The fate of the world literally rests on Supreme Profit of Zorp's fingers, churches frequently hold public 'contraception burnings', the state subsidizes liposuction, and only native-born Readonablists who have never left the nation are permitted to run for office. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zorpland's national animal is the Lizard-demon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Reasonablism.

Zorpland is ranked 139,776th in the world and 32nd in Europe but better for Most Primitive, scoring -200.59 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
