The Corner of H-Zhena is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Dygonite with an iron fist, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.823 billion Zhenans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Law & Order, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shu'ulathoi. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zhenan economy, worth 512 trillion scarabs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 181,677 scarabs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and election debates consists mostly of two grey suits arguing over how to best preserve the status quo. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. H-Zhena's national animal is the honey badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

H-Zhena is ranked 167,642nd in the world and 6,267th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 27.17 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
