The Republic of Zumlandia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Žorvaldr Eirķksson with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.027 billion Zumlandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ylläsjärvi. The average income tax rate is 20.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Zumlandian economy, worth 141 trillion Maarkas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 137,596 Maarkas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Ylläsjärvi's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, and the Zumlandia Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime is totally unknown. Zumlandia's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Orthodox.
