The Republic of Zukish is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 219 million Zukishians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 49.6%.
The strong Zukishian economy, worth 15.6 trillion Zukish Laris 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 71,342 Zukish Laris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.
Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, disability advocates are not amused that they are told to be dependent on Zukishians's kindness, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, and social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zukish's national animal is the Mcxreni, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
