Not Zazumo

Population3.295 billion

CurrencyGold Dragon
AnimalDire Wolf

The Republic of Not Zazumo is a massive, safe nation, notable for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and compulsory gun ownership. The quiet, industrious population of 3.295 billion Not Zazumoans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, moralistic, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 28.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Not Zazumoan economy, worth 184 trillion Gold Dragons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 55,895 Gold Dragons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has always been at war with Moltovea, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, and money is being desperately pumped into the ruined economy. 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 71,443rd in the world and 132nd in Birb for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
