The Milkshake of Zess is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 607 million Zessians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Capital District. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Zessian economy, worth 57.1 trillion Z-coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 94,098 Z-coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists outnumber citizens two to one, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, Leader's speeches are beloved by insomniacs, and political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions. Crime is totally unknown. Zess's national animal is the neko, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zess is ranked 158,920th in the world and 7,128th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 72.56 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
