The Workers' State of Zulanka is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the working class with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 19.316 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 5,621 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 291,017 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, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, hospitals in Zulanka are too busy serving the needs of The Red Sea to see Zulankans, and the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence. Crime is totally unknown. Zulanka's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zulanka is ranked 138th in the world and 2nd in The Red Sea for Least Corrupt Governments, with 98.91 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
