The Free Land of Zondu is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The quiet, industrious population of 5.523 billion Zondiis enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 54.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zondii economy, worth 529 trillion drachmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is 95,831 drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, and some Zondii athletes have defected to Blackacre after being denied the chance to compete in international sporting events. Crime is totally unknown. Zondu's national animal is the black-footed cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zondu is ranked 169,917th in the world and 7,296th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.2 Crimes Per Hour.
