The Borderlands of Zug um Zug is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alanna Sun with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, ban on automobiles, and daily referendums. The democratic population of 1.756 billion Zugfahrer 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, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Administration, although Education, Welfare, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of not Duluth. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Zügig economy, worth 42.8 trillion victory points a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Tourism, Pizza Delivery, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 24,371 victory points, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sniffer dogs are trained to follow clouds of fruity-smelling vapor, being Alanna Sun has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, the new Rail Bird Supremacy Party is faring well in the polls, and the National Archive now covers square miles of warehouses in order to accommodate its new stone tablets system. Crime is relatively low. Zug um Zug's national animal is the rail bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Glory Trainism.

Zug um Zug is ranked 170,129th in the world and 21st in Council of Constructed Languages for Most Avoided, scoring 1.08 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
