The Unknown Location of Zero Gravity Zone is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Vortex with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ritual sacrifices, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.322 billion Cybernetic Humanoids are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Piersontech Industries. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Cybernetic economy, worth a remarkable 4,366 trillion Piersontech Credits a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 327,786 Piersontech Credits, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

The most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, and funding for education has been redirected into the military. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zero Gravity Zone's national animal is the Gray Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Pulse Emissionism.

Zero Gravity Zone is ranked 32,066th in the world and 1st in End 500 for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
