The Workers' State of Zulankan Outpost 8 is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 14.71 billion Zulankans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — prioritizes Welfare, although Education, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Zulankan economy, worth 143 trillion worker's credits 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, highly specialized black market in Pizza Delivery, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. 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 9,759 worker's credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zulankan Outpost 8's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zulankan Outpost 8 is ranked 4,854th in the world and 1st in Axis Region for Most Income Equality, scoring 94.4 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
