The Store is Out of Zess is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Charlie David Hanson with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, disturbing lack of elderly people, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 968 million Zessians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital District. The average income tax rate is 76.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Zessian economy, worth 111 trillion exchange tickets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 115,057 exchange tickets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, and Zess's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. Crime is totally unknown. Zess's national animal is the immortal jellyfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Zess is ranked 10,680th in the world and 310th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 85.26 Quips Per Hour.
