Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population7.239 billion



The People's Republic of Zankioa is a colossal, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.239 billion Zankioans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zankio. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zankioan economy, worth 914 trillion Fenexes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 126,269 Fenexes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, rumor has it that Leader has won three lotteries in a row, going on a diet invalidates your passport, and the tightness of border controls in Zankioa leave a little to be desired. Crime is totally unknown. Zankioa's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zankioa is ranked 20,046th in the world and 950th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 126,269.76 Standard Monetary Units.
