The Terrible Influence of Zazumo is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by A corrupt leader with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.823 billion Nerds 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Parts Unknown. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nerd economy, worth a remarkable 1,905 trillion Dollars 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 161,184 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

A common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", courtrooms can be a little sketchy, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, and there's no representation without taxation. Crime is totally unknown. Zazumo's national animal is the Doggo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Nachos.

Zazumo is ranked 178,076th in the world and 7,890th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -5.92 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
