The Psychotic Palate of Zombie 12 is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Erin the Fair with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, parental licensing program, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.411 billion Zombie 12ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zobo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Zombie 12ian economy, worth 944 trillion z12s a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 214,057 z12s, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,234,519 per year while the poor average 17,749, a ratio of 69.6 to 1.

The nation's massive battleships are often mistaken for islands, torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, the only place where one can see the Zombie 12ian cherry tree is in a museum, and there are no minimum wage laws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zombie 12's national animal is the z12, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Erinism.

Zombie 12 is ranked 18,522nd in the world and 6th in NationStates for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 69.55 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
