The Kingdom of ZuJay is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Most Supreme Overlord of Everything with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, enslaved workforce, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.453 billion ZuJayians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Sytadel. The average income tax rate is 8.8%.

The frighteningly efficient ZuJayian economy, worth 221 trillion patriotisms a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 152,574 patriotisms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, out-of-work basketball players loom over the unemployment line, disposable antiseptic wipes are considered a social necessity, and Brown Sugar 101 is a popular course at community colleges. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. ZuJay's national animal is the mitochondria, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Praise-The-Leaderism.

ZuJay is ranked 52,191st in the world and 48th in The United Federations for Most Pro-Market, scoring 55.44 on the Rand Index.
