The Republic of Zdagoburg is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Varja Ilyich Aleksandrov with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.292 billion Zdagoburgans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dubric Zapadograd. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Zdagoburgian economy, worth 100 trillion Zdravies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 77,649 Zdravies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding", airplane passenger seat sizes and ticket prices are both first-class, and fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zdagoburg's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodox.

Zdagoburg is ranked 32,667th in the world and 1,633rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 73.82 on the Human Development Index.
