The Matriarchy of Flying Snow is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The devout population of 294 million citizens of Zhou are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish graceful economy, worth 5.41 trillion moons a year, is highly specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 18,409 moons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Movies depict muscle-bound women kicking down a titanium door to carry hysterical men to safety, newspapers and TV broadcasters are given a list of 'acceptable words', the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, and the news is showing footage of Leader bullying an old man to the point of tears. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flying Snow's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Flying Snow is ranked 83,882nd in the world and 3,672nd in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 66.11 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
