The Community of Zghona is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 378 million Zghonans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.5%.

The very strong Zghonan economy, worth 21.2 trillion fillets a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 56,117 fillets, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 212,105 per year while the poor average 10,330, a ratio of 20.5 to 1.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, organ donation is compulsory, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. 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 49,022nd in the world and 24th in The Democratic Republic for Longest Average Lifespans, with 63.46 Years.
