The TERROR of Zombie 7 is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Z7 with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, enslaved workforce, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 9.657 billion Zombie 7ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elmira. The average income tax rate is 16.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zombie 7ian economy, worth a remarkable 2,059 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 213,275 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Human sacrifice to the metaphorical altar of Mammon ensures national prosperity, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, Z7's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success, and Z7 claims tax rises are the result of 'curses'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zombie 7's national animal is the kangaroo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is voodoo.

Zombie 7 is ranked 100,846th in the world and 130th in NationStates for Most Extreme, scoring 19.35 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
