The Democratic Republic of Zosnor is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by JasonRahl with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 826 million Zosnorians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tar Valon. The average income tax rate is 14.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Zosnorian economy, worth 99.1 trillion Zos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 120,024 Zos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Photographers have to apply for a license to photograph JasonRahl, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, casino tax breaks are even bigger than their jackpots, and political dissidents are cut off from essential services. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Zosnor's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zosnor is ranked 15,672nd in the world and 456th in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 92 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
