The Empire of The Zappening is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Zapkiller with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.255 billion Zappeningians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Defense, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Zappeningian economy, worth a remarkable 2,760 trillion Zapcoins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 298,278 Zapcoins, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government loves seeing the little people fight, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors, and there's a bright dawn ahead for The Zappening. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Zappening's national animal is the Derp, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zapism.

The Zappening is ranked 6,170th in the world and 2nd in Board Game Nations for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 13,331.9 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
