The Commonwealth of West Zong Kizoy is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Kurr with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.821 billion West Zong Kizoyians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctuary. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse West Zong Kizoyian economy, worth 254 trillion koins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is 90,083 koins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions, young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, 3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly, and politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West Zong Kizoy's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

West Zong Kizoy is ranked 198,200th in the world and 480th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -12.41 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
