The Republic of Zumlandia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Žorvaldr Eirķksson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.551 billion Zumlandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ylläsjärvi. The average income tax rate is 4.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zumlandian economy, worth 858 trillion Maarkas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 188,537 Maarkas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter Zumlandian pirates, corporate lobbying has been outlawed, and almost half of the child population live rough on the streets. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Zumlandia's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Orthodox.

Zumlandia is ranked 5,833rd in the world and 337th in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,916.74 Tourists Per Hour.
