The Zepublic of Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzy is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.301 billion Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzyians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzcity. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzyian economy, worth a remarkable 3,462 trillion ZZy-eggs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 212,396 ZZy-eggs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,555,766 per year while the poor average 8,923, a ratio of 174 to 1.

Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, the richest citizens live in sheltered private citadels, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, and citizens drive tank-like vehicles with mounted machine guns. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzy's national animal is the ZZy, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzy is ranked 8,033rd in the world and 8th in Taijitu for Highest Drug Use, scoring 112.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
