OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The People's Republic of Zhengan is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Xi Zhang with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, compulsory military service, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.408 billion Zhenganese are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hangzhou. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Zhenganian economy, worth a remarkable 2,367 trillion Luans 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Gambling, and Information Technology. 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 an amazing 207,521 Luans, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,363,770 per year while the poor average 12,320, a ratio of 110 to 1.

International collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Zhengan, international war crimes are good for business and business is booming, drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps", and it is a silent spring in Zhengan. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zhengan's national animal is the Bengy Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is State Sanctioned Atheism.

Zhengan is ranked 3,368th in the world and 4th in Anteria for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 110.69 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
