The Federal Socialist Republic of Ziotah and Riverside is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Prime Minister with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.145 billion Ziotans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lindon. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ziotan economy, worth a remarkable 1,627 trillion Zios a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 146,062 Zios, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "right of sanctuary" stops police pursuit into temples and churches, there's a lot of hot air coming from the Capitol Building, Mountain Blue Jay is one of the most popular forenames in Ziotah and Riverside, and the government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ziotah and Riverside's national animal is the Mountain Blue Jay, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ziotah and Riverside is ranked 2,095th in the world and 45th in Forest for Most Inclusive, scoring 319.32 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
