The Most Serene Republic of ZenPenguin is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 744 million Zenians 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 is primarily concerned with Education, with Administration, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Osea. The average income tax rate is 47.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving zenian economy, worth 53.2 trillion zens a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 71,449 zens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, and political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act. Crime is totally unknown. ZenPenguin's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

ZenPenguin is ranked 145,333rd in the world and 228th in The Free Nations Region for Highest Economic Output, with 53.2 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
