“Unity, Discipline, Work”
Regional Influence: Squire
Location: Hsiao Han
The Queendom of ZBJ is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.155 billion ZBJians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.4%.
The strong ZBJian economy, worth 268 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 52,112 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 354,299 per year while the poor average 2,800, a ratio of 126 to 1.
The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, surveillance cameras are banned, and ZBJ's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. ZBJ's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
