The Republic of Zumlandia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Žorvaldr Eirķksson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.163 billion Zumlandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ylläsjärvi. The average income tax rate is 40.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zumlandian economy, worth 822 trillion Maarkas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 197,576 Maarkas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems, the national sporting identity is represented by a talking burger and a singing smartphone, judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend, and newly synthesized elements' half-lives are a million times shorter than the time it takes to say their names. Crime is totally unknown. Zumlandia's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Orthodox.

Zumlandia is ranked 168,271st in the world and 7,541st in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 16.67 on the Hayek Index.
