The People's Republic of Zankioa is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.828 billion Zankioans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zankio. The average income tax rate is 84.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zankioan economy, worth a remarkable 1,076 trillion Fenexes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 121,964 Fenexes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The navy plans patrols according to how many pubs nearby ports have, families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations, and police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zankioa's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zankioa is ranked 18,039th in the world and 917th in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 66.63 Atheism Rate.
