LeaderZachariah VII


The Republic of Zachlend is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Zachariah VII with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.753 billion Zachlanders 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, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hamington. The average income tax rate is 56.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Zachlander economy, worth 198 trillion Zooloos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 113,008 Zooloos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The tomato-covered corpses that decorate the nation's cities are a favourite amongst morbid tourists, poverty is disloyal to the Motherland, schoolyard sandboxes resemble ashtrays due to the large number of cigarette butts, and there is a 'turn around' sign at every border entrance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zachlend's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Zachlend is ranked 28,909th in the world and 1,482nd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,506.79 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
