LeaderŽorvaldr Eirķksson


The Republic of Zumlandia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Žorvaldr Eirķksson with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.795 billion Zumlandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ylläsjärvi. The average income tax rate is 35.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zumlandian economy, worth 283 trillion Maarkas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 158,038 Maarkas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The justice of Zumlandia is considered superior to that of other nations, biology and religious education classes have recently been merged, graffiti graces every city's streets, and female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast. 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 36,201st in the world and 1,802nd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,831.28 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
