A Zazy Puppet 19

The Republic of A Zazy Puppet 19 is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its avant-garde cinema, keen interest in outer space, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, devout population of 5.274 billion Zazy Puppet 19ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 52.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Zazy Puppet 19ian economy, worth 562 trillion bitcoins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 106,684 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, army rations are served on silver platters, foreign lack of enthusiasm for Zazy Puppet 19ian nose-flute disco metal is seen as a reasonable casus belli, and the government seizes all major gold finds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Zazy Puppet 19's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

A Zazy Puppet 19 is ranked 154,589th in the world and 221st in Zazumo for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -2.74 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
