The Democratic States of Zombodice is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Zombo with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cheerful population of 18.194 billion Zombodiceans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gaia. The average income tax rate is 5.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zombodicean economy, worth a remarkable 4,218 trillion Gaia Credits a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 231,848 Gaia Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, Big Agriculture has the government by the nuts, edutainment video games are taking Zombodice's students to the next level, and kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zombodice's national animal is the Gray Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Powerful Zombo.

Zombodice is ranked 77,842nd in the world and 3,762nd in Lazarus for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 946.96 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
