The Corner of H-Zhena is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Dygonite with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, sprawling nuclear power plants, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.716 billion Zhenans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shu'ulathoi. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Zhenan economy, worth a remarkable 1,521 trillion scarabs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 266,106 scarabs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, skateparks can be found in every city, much of H-Zhena's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. H-Zhena's national animal is the honey badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

H-Zhena is ranked 1,214th in the world and 36th in The East Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,789.58 Tourists Per Hour.
