The Dictatorship of Zoyan is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 13.302 billion Zoyanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Zoyanian economy, worth 31.4 trillion Euros a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 2,358 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zoyan's national animal is the hawk.

Zoyan is ranked 24,588th in the world and 1,038th in the South Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 115.21 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
