LeaderLone Survivor


The Impending Doom of Zombie Penguins is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lone Survivor with an even hand, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 13.102 billion Zombies enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Old Abandoned Zoo. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Zombie Penguinsian economy, worth a remarkable 5,507 trillion Brains a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 420,391 Brains, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,991,935 per year while the poor average 19,520, a ratio of 153 to 1.

Surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, the name of the "Butcher of Bigtopia" adorns shirts across Zombie Penguins, new treatments are rejected if they cannot be explained using only one-syllable words, and towns that stop turning a profit are turned into animal sanctuaries. 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. Zombie Penguins's national animal is the Fish, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Aaaahhhh.

Zombie Penguins is ranked 8,399th in the world and 8th in The Bar on the corner of every region for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100.13 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
