The Cookie Thieving Confederacy of Zoran is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its closed borders, museums and concert halls, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.042 billion Zoranians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zoradia. The average income tax rate is 32.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zoranian economy, worth 89.1 trillion Zorallas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 85,496 Zorallas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, the government has pinkie-promised never to use its veto power except in an emergency, the standard prescription for infertility-causing conditions is "go have a baby", and conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Zoran's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Zoran is ranked 18,277th in the world and 374th in the West Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 4,826.65 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
