The Free Land of Zuelong is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 530 million Duskitorians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anthian City. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Zuelongian economy, worth 44.5 trillion stozappies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,953 stozappies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society, government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, it ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Zuelong, and forest fires have dropped dramatically as there are hardly any forests left. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zuelong's national animal is the weevil, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
