Zulankan Outpost 83

Currencyworker's credit

The People's Republic of Zulankan Outpost 83 is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 7.122 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, although Education, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 70.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Zulankan economy, worth 76.4 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 dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery. Average income is 10,732 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 83's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zulankan Outpost 83 is ranked 105,917th in the world and 1st in Confederate Arkansas for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 88.53 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
