Zulankan Outpost 49

Population6.699 billion

Currencyworker's credit

The People's Republic of Zulankan Outpost 49 is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 6.699 billion Zulankans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, with Education, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Zulankan economy, worth 78.0 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 broadly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 11,638 worker's credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zulankan Outpost 49's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zulankan Outpost 49 is ranked 170,865th in the world and 3rd in The Red Fleet for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 3 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
