The United Communes of Zrhajan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Their leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.03 billion Zrhajanites are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Zrhajanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,729 trillion Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 218,992 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dictionary sales have hit an all-time high, all recreational drugs are legal, the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", and advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines. Crime is totally unknown. Zrhajan's national animal is the Gryphon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is nonexistent.

Zrhajan is ranked 425th in the world and 7th in The Internationale for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 10,669.1 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
