The Queensland of Zouif is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Sabrina with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.145 billion Zouifians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hana. The average income tax rate is 42.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Zouifian economy, worth 119 trillion Chus a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 104,630 Chus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Straitjackets are a common religious garb, Queen Sabrina can't hear a thing when the unwashed masses throw rocks at the new state limousine, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, and every workday begins with group therapy. Crime is totally unknown. Zouif's national animal is the Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Orthodox.

Zouif is ranked 218,892nd in the world and 37th in Unieae for Rudest Citizens, with 18.35 Insults Per Minute.
