The Loquacious Lipograms of Zwangzug is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Erin Splinter with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, soft-spoken computers, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 31.333 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 7,424 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 236,947 checks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In distant lands the nation is known as a lovely place that was even better in the good old days, they say that Zwangzugians made a dessert and called it peace, rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. 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 231,436th in the world and 2nd in Wrigley for Most Armed, with 0.11 Weapons Per Person.
