The Republic of Zumlandia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Žorvaldr Eirķksson with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.714 billion Zumlandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Industry, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ylläsjärvi. The average income tax rate is 30.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zumlandian economy, worth 733 trillion Maarkas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 197,623 Maarkas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, and 75% of the words in government-funded "Super Fun Maths Games" are probably inaccurate. Crime is totally unknown. Zumlandia's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Orthodox.

Zumlandia is ranked 203,154th in the world and 9,875th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -16.12 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
