The Kingdom of Zozanio is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Zako Youri with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 782 million Zozans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mai'Zekore. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zozanian economy, worth 97.0 trillion Jecols a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 124,096 Jecols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Zako Youri has just been declared ruler of Zozanio in an international press conference, all the world's a stage for Zozanian political theatrics, streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all, and the reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zozanio's national animal is the Grizzly Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zozanio is ranked 15,536th in the world and 869th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 79.08 Years.
