The Unitary State of Zimmerdachen is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Glorious Sun Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.835 billion Zimmerdens 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haben. The average income tax rate is 13.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Zimmerdachian economy, worth a remarkable 2,558 trillion Rauns a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 289,628 Rauns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, residents of ageing concrete tower blocks have vital renovation work stopped by Brutalism enthusiasts, there's a big brother in every prison, and vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Zimmerdachen's national animal is the Frog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zimmerdachen is ranked 22,869th in the world and 1,219th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 80.41 on the Human Development Index.
