The United Socialist States of Zongtosin is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 337 million Zongtosinians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 67.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Zongtosinian economy, worth 2.31 trillion Berroes 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 mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is 6,840 Berroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, the government has announced its plans to construct a giant weaponised robot-cat, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Zongtosinians, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zongtosin's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zongtosin is ranked 221,375th in the world and 8,150th in Balder for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -15.09 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
