The Kingdom of Zozanio is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Zako Youri with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.826 billion Zozans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mai'Zekore. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zozanian economy, worth 237 trillion Jecols a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 130,181 Jecols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, glamping Zozans won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, and political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zozanio's national animal is the Grizzly Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zozanio is ranked 119,775th in the world and 4,333rd in Balder for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 921.13 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
