The People's Republic of Zankioa is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.659 billion Zankioans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zankio. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zankioan economy, worth 723 trillion Fenexes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 127,769 Fenexes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, and drones are unable to lift the weight of their accompanying paperwork. Crime is totally unknown. Zankioa's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zankioa is ranked 148,442nd in the world and 7,592nd in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -6.48 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
