The Psychotic Depravity of Zombie 14 is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Snowfall with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.448 billion Zombie 14ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lebazoa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 55.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Zombie 14ian economy, worth 797 trillion francs a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 179,314 francs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,016,619 per year while the poor average 15,463, a ratio of 65.7 to 1.

Children who can't memorize their multiplication tables are sent to the mines, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, citizens are forbidden from leaving the country, and engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zombie 14's national animal is the porpoise, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Candy.

Zombie 14 is ranked 18,734th in the world and 7th in NationStates for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 65.74 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
