The Unites Islamic States of Zidium is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its triple-decker prams, soft-spoken computers, and digital currency. The compassionate, devout population of 710 million Zidumites are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zidumica DZ. The average income tax rate is 59.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Zidiumian economy, worth 42.2 trillion Zidirhams a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 59,502 Zidirhams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political detractors refer to Leader as 'that Bigtopian puppet', excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, they who do not work shall not eat, and adultery has been made a capital offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zidium's national animal is the Hudhud, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zidium is ranked 214,336th in the world and 8,774th in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 6.02 Atheism Rate.
