The Transitional Government of Zekeinistan is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Honorable Chairman Ulvi Eldar with an iron fist, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, sprawling nuclear power plants, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.668 billion Zekeinistanis are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Spirituality, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amashabul. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Zekeinistani economy, worth a remarkable 5,995 trillion Tegs a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 382,686 Tegs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,149,778 per year while the poor average 99,426, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

The richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, every political party claims that their platform is based on divine revelation, a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, and women are reassured that they're being oppressed for their own good. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zekeinistan's national animal is the Elephant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Zekeinistan is ranked 223,794th in the world and 1st in Christians Against Shatnez for Most Primitive, scoring -219.59 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
