The Spooky Minister of Zunden is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.014 billion Zundenians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Zundenian economy, worth 33.0 trillion points a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, Automobile Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 16,373 points, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Traffic tickets are punishable by 9000 push-ups, military spending is on the increase, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zunden's national animal is the beast, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zunden is ranked 88,383rd in the world and 5,027th in Balder for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
