The Community of Zghona is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.241 billion Zghonans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Defense, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.9%.

The very strong Zghonan economy, worth 120 trillion fillets a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 53,706 fillets, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 163,689 per year while the poor average 13,671, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, the dartboard at the Zghonan Cancer Research Charity bears a picture of Leader's face, and legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Zghona's national animal is the flying fish, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

Zghona is ranked 65,649th in the world and 438th in Europeia for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,070.38 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
