The Republic of Zumlandia is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 836 million Zumlandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ylläsjärvi. The average income tax rate is 16.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Zumlandian economy, worth 104 trillion Maarkas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 124,669 Maarkas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
Businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems, school plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, and police struggle to solve crimes due to the lack of fingerprint records. Crime is totally unknown. Zumlandia's national animal is the Griffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
