The Zuper Zealous Zoologist of Zany Zanes is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Zenthos with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.033 billion Zany Zanesians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pop. The average income tax rate is 30.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Zany Zanesian economy, worth 219 trillion Z's a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is 54,482 Z's, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, life-saving resuscitation is denied based on decades-old teenage diaries that declare "I want to die before I get old", the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, and years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zany Zanes's national animal is the Zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zen.

Zany Zanes is ranked 30,922nd in the world and 26th in The Bar on the corner of every region for Best Weather, with 121 Meters Of Sunlight.
