The Zepublic of Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzy is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 20.061 billion Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzyians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 4,306 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 214,656 ZZy-eggs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,991,192 per year while the poor average 2,178, a ratio of 913 to 1.

Political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, schoolyard sandboxes resemble ashtrays due to the large number of cigarette butts, toilet paper is considered a non-essential item in the embargo against Brasilistan, and suspicious glow-in-the-dark wasps remain a source of terror and awe. 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 240,920th in the world and 33rd in Taijitu for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -30.33 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
