The ឵឵឵឵ of Island Zero is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Z3 with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.254 billion Islanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Furnace. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Zeron economy, worth a remarkable 3,050 trillion bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 580,512 bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Many friends and relatives of Z3 have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, the latest "must-have" uPhone is 1/4 mm thinner than last year's uPhone, the children of Island Zero are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, and passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections. Crime is totally unknown. Island Zero's national animal is the tardigrade, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Island Zero is ranked 5,174th in the world and 5th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Influential, scoring 15,787 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
