Not Zazumo

Population5.435 billion

CurrencyGold Dragon
AnimalDire Wolf

The Republic of Not Zazumo is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-working, humorless population of 5.435 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 33.7%.

The thriving Not Zazumoan economy, worth 460 trillion Gold Dragons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 84,778 Gold Dragons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Theatre may or may not be changing for the better but it is being changed for good, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, and immersive video game experiences are interrupted by incessant disclaimer pop-ups. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Not Zazumo's national animal is the Dire Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Not Zazumo is ranked 71,310th in the world and 490th in Devide by Zero for Most Pro-Market, scoring 51.78 on the Rand Index.
