The United Territories of Red Zone 8 is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Kane with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.83 billion Zoners love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hammerhead Falls. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Red Zone 8ian economy, worth 798 trillion Tiberiums a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,967 Tiberiums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and the nation has an international reputation for compassion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Red Zone 8's national animal is the Hammerhead, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Red Zone 8 is ranked 1,977th in the world and 84th in Balder for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 9,239.05 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
