The A of the B of the C of the D of Zjaum is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by T'korov Eyeketrau with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 9.791 billion R'Koo-oi enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute, corrupt, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Education and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wt'kroiya Turayi. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Wrau-yi economy, worth a remarkable 3,014 trillion wyis a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 307,858 wyis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Fistfighting vigilantes tend to suffer a lot of gunshot wounds, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, comic books avoid plot inconsistencies by removing the plot, and travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Zjaum flights to avoid the pay lavatories. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Zjaum's national animal is the woiwi, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Reformed Christianity.

Zjaum is ranked 4,788th in the world and 4th in The League for Highest Economic Output, with 3,014 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
