The Zazy Zazu of Zazumo is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Doctor with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.569 billion Zazys have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of No City Found. The average income tax rate is 71.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Zazy economy, worth a remarkable 1,372 trillion Irish Bananas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 160,198 Irish Bananas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, the government is hoping that medical aid will speak louder than human rights abuses, you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health, and marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home. Crime is totally unknown. Zazumo's national animal is the Shamrock Chimp, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Holy Banana.

Zazumo is ranked 100,919th in the world and 5,375th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 15.54 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
