The Workers' State of Zulanka is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the working class with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.221 billion Zulankans 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, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zukanla. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Zulankan economy, worth a remarkable 3,931 trillion worker's credits 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 led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 258,326 worker's credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and tourists visiting the nation are harangued for being capitalist pig-dogs. Crime is totally unknown. Zulanka's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zulanka is ranked 3,333rd in the world and 1st in The Red Sea for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 94.93 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
