The Empire of Zeno-sama is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Sarvesh Blaze with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.041 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 Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Highbourne. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zeno-saman economy, worth a remarkable 1,154 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 229,006 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers, dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, and space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Zeno-sama. 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 Ancientism.

Zeno-sama is ranked 28,939th in the world and 1,442nd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,812.14 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
