The Federal Republic of United Zealandic is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 1.083 billion United Zealandicians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Velden. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zealandicians economy, worth 172 trillion Xiccs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 159,598 Xiccs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, a proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', the government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia, and acute politicians deride opposition members for being obtuse. Crime is totally unknown. United Zealandic's national animal is the Gray wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

United Zealandic is ranked 22,716th in the world and 56th in Thaecia for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 4,799.02 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
