Lost Girls of Zenussia

Population570 million


The Nomadic Peoples of Lost Girls of Zenussia is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its feral children, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 570 million Zenussians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 81.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Zenussian economy, worth 12.5 trillion Runis 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 21,942 Runis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's considered a valid legal defence to say "a demon made me do it", the people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli, signs of extraterrestrial life are just foreign astronauts evading Zenussian justice, and spies caught in Lost Girls of Zenussia are never heard from again. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lost Girls of Zenussia's national animal is the Sable, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lost Girls of Zenussia is ranked 119,607th in the world and 2nd in Libya for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 747.04 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
