The Democratic Republic of Zosnor is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by JasonRahl with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.531 billion Zosnorians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tar Valon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Zosnorian economy, worth 366 trillion Zos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 144,822 Zos, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 480,426 per year while the poor average 32,582, a ratio of 14.7 to 1.

Glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide, the only thing slower than the economy is the exchange where it's managed, arthritic surgeons with tremulous fingers reassure patients that they are in safe hands, and corporations cut costs by taking away safety-features on their products. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zosnor's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zosnor is ranked 181,319th in the world and 6,595th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 14.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
