The MP of Zon island is a massive, genial nation, ruled by John Wallace with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.686 billion Zon islandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Turtle city. The average income tax rate is 43.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Zon islandian economy, worth 103 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,477 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

John Wallace has just been declared ruler of Zon island in an international press conference, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, and more than one company makes the board game Monopoly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zon island's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Zon island is ranked 207,506th in the world and 226th in Thaecia for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -9.47 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
