The Karens of Zikuri is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.737 billion Lindij enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ennouk. The average income tax rate is 30.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Lindij economy, worth 312 trillion Lidnijs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,672 Lidnijs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Advertisers are struggling to make water sound cool to a twitchy public, religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, Zikuri's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, and several inches are being added to first class seating. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zikuri's national animal is the Alpaca, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Zikuri is ranked 182,024th in the world and 6,047th in Osiris for Most Influential, scoring 14 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
