The Workers' State of Zulanka is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the working class with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, otherworldly petting zoo, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.43 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 4,913 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 281,891 worker's credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds, and the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned. Crime is totally unknown. Zulanka's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zulanka is ranked 5,749th in the world and 1st in The Red Sea for Most Politically Free, scoring 93.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
