The Loquacious Lipograms of Zwangzug is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Erin Splinter with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, prohibition of alcohol, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 30.118 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, 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 all-consuming Zwangzugian economy, worth a remarkable 6,786 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 mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 225,341 checks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, refugees from other nations are flocking to Zwangzug's border, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. 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 574th in the world and 1st in Wrigley for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 3,372.36 Tourists Per Hour.
