Possibly Zazumo

Population3.696 billion


The Republic of Possibly Zazumo is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 3.696 billion Possibly Zazumoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 58.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Possibly Zazumoan economy, worth 328 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,926 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Every workday begins with group therapy, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals, and former nobles are being issued new identities in the wake of the end of serfdom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Possibly Zazumo's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Possibly Zazumo is ranked 30,481st in the world and 24th in Zazumo for Highest Poor Incomes, with 55,990.74 Standard Monetary Units.
