The Unitary State of Zimmerdachen is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Glorious Sun Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, otherworldly petting zoo, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.85 billion Zimmerdens 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haben. The average income tax rate is 16.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Zimmerdachian economy, worth a remarkable 2,607 trillion Rauns a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 294,597 Rauns, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

New urban roads are threatening city parks, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, the rich are forced to sell their houses to pay for more police to prevent their houses from being burgled, and most pop videos prominently feature the Zimmerdachian flag. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Zimmerdachen's national animal is the Frog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zimmerdachen is ranked 75,131st in the world and 2,749th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 4.96 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
