Grand Kingdom of Zilean Empire

Population318 million


AnimalForest Deer

The Constitutional Monarchy of Grand Kingdom of Zilean Empire is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 318 million Zileans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Altantis. The average income tax rate is 34.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Zilean economy, worth 27.0 trillion Soveigns 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 Information Technology, Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 84,945 Soveigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Board shorts have replaced board rooms, sailors spend their shore leave helping old ladies cross the street, women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, and populations of two-headed Forest Deer have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grand Kingdom of Zilean Empire's national animal is the Forest Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Grand Kingdom of Zilean Empire is ranked 47,333rd in the world and 1,904th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,941.52 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
