Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Workers' State of Zulanka is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the vanguard of the working class with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.408 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 3,125 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 Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 233,076 worker's credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, and the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction. Crime is totally unknown. Zulanka's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zulanka is ranked 306th in the world and 1st in The Red Sea for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 12,615.02 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
