Zulankan Outpost 63

Population10.29 billion

Currencyworker's credit

The People's Republic of Zulankan Outpost 63 is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 10.29 billion Zulankans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Welfare, although Education, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Zulankan economy, worth 122 trillion worker's credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Pizza Delivery, Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 11,948 worker's credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zulankan Outpost 63's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zulankan Outpost 63 is ranked 31,229th in the world and 1st in Antifascism for Most Politically Free, scoring 80 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
