The Workers' State of Zulanka is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by the working class with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, avant-garde cinema, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.948 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 3,402 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 243,947 worker's credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

National parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', and drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government. Crime is totally unknown. Zulanka's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zulanka is ranked 215th in the world and 2nd in The Red Sea for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 156.65 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
