Population1.436 billion



The Federal Republic of Zischia is a massive, genial nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.436 billion Zischians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vizischvi. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Zischian economy, worth 102 trillion Zyzas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 71,057 Zyzas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, it's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt, parents who reward their teens' chores with concert tickets are charged with illegal reselling, and the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zischia's national animal is the Schizzan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cyxvizhism.

Zischia is ranked 165,972nd in the world and 162nd in Thalassia for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -20.01 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
