LeaderSarvesh Blaze


The Empire of Zeno-sama is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Sarvesh Blaze with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.022 billion Zeno-samen 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 Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Highbourne. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zeno-saman economy, worth a remarkable 1,151 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 229,266 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The public are free to vote for whomever the government wants in office, orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and the Zeno-saman basket weaving sector is on the brink of collapse as cheap imports flood the market. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zeno-sama's national animal is the Scorpion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ancientism.

Zeno-sama is ranked 202,469th in the world and 8,874th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -544.2 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
