The Empire of Zeno-sama is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sarvesh Blaze with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, parental licensing program, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.723 billion Zeno-samen are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Highbourne. The average income tax rate is 81.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zeno-saman economy, worth 548 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 201,469 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The "fire department" is often called to remove offensive religious texts, red rinses are frequently applied to grey hair, treaties are taken to be mere rules of thumb, and people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zeno-sama's national animal is the Scorpion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Zionism.

Zeno-sama is ranked 532nd in the world and 381st in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 213 Valid Endorsements.
