The Confederacy of Zenstaat is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Confederate Counsel with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.304 billion Zenstaatians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zendorf. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Zenstaatian economy, worth a remarkable 1,139 trillion Gülders a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 214,778 Gülders, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,221,828 per year while the poor average 18,379, a ratio of 66.5 to 1.

Daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter, people all over Zenstaat are dying of 'Mad Bison Disease', the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, and military officers are given medals for disobeying orders. Crime is a serious problem. Zenstaat's national animal is the Bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zenstaat is ranked 26,231st in the world and 44th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,582.03 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
