|Leader||The Prime Minister|
|Animal||Mountain Blue Jay|
The Federal Socialist Republic of Ziotah and Riverside is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Prime Minister with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.539 billion Ziotans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lindon. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Ziotan economy, worth a remarkable 1,273 trillion Zios a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 149,128 Zios, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Babies are a small but significant export, courtrooms can be a little sketchy, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ziotah and Riverside's national animal is the Mountain Blue Jay, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
