AnimalDire Wolf

The Republic of Not Zazumo is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, avant-garde cinema, and compulsory military service. The hard-working, humorless population of 5.918 billion Not Zazumoans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 33.8%.

The thriving Not Zazumoan economy, worth 525 trillion Gold Dragons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 88,752 Gold Dragons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are forced to donate blood once every three months, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, devotion to God is only skin-deep, and the needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Not Zazumo's national animal is the Dire Wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Not Zazumo is ranked 136,387th in the world and 205th in Zazumo for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 80.49 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
