The Commonwealth of Zedyeg is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.613 billion Zedyegians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 83.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Zedyegian economy, worth 254 trillion bitcoins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,486 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, the news is showing footage of Leader bullying an old man to the point of tears, power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, and the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zedyeg's national animal is the Chickadee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zedyeg is ranked 66,708th in the world and 91st in The Free Nations Region for Highest Economic Output, with 254 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
