The Loquacious Lipograms of Zwangzug is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Erin Splinter with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 33.825 billion Zwangzugians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zwischen. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Zwangzugian economy, worth a remarkable 8,126 trillion checks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 240,259 checks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is giving peace a chance, geosynchronous satellites are now manned by unpaid interns, stone wrist watches that weigh 20lb are the latest trend, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime is totally unknown. Zwangzug's national animal is the zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Church of Caissa.

Zwangzug is ranked 4,950th in the world and 1st in Wrigley for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 554.46 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
