Income Tax

Both the federal and provincial governments have imposed income taxes on individuals, and these are the most significant sources of revenue for those levels of government. The federal government charges the bulk of income taxes with the provinces charging a somewhat lower percentage. Income taxes throughout Zong are progressive with the high income residents paying a higher percentage than the low income. As of 1 January 2019, Siakang has the highest income tax rates in the country at 55% at the highest bracket, combining a federal tax of 30% and a provincial and local rate of 25%.


Under the Constitution of Zong, the responsibility for enacting and enforcing labor laws, including the minimum wage, rests with the provinces which have been granted this power by federal legislation. As such there is no de jure federal minimum wage. The de facto federal minimum wage is the general adult minimum wage rate of the province where the work is performed. This means, for example, that a railway company could not legally pay a worker in Penia less than $23.37 per hour regardless of the worker's experience. Minimum wage currently ranges from $14.30/h to $39.92/h.

As of 1 January 2019, the current minimum wages by province are as follow:

Physical properties

Natural resources

Zong has the 14th largest reserves of oil and the 14th largest reserves of natural gas in Adonia. Most of its oil and gas is located off-shore in its EEZ in the Jade Sea and the Sea of Hitani especially.

Zong has a significant quantity of minerals, including large deposits of coal, uranium, iron and gold. It also has beauxite deposits in the north of the country, as well as other metals of lesser amount. Coal is mined almost exclusively in the east of the country. Almost all of the coal mined in Zong is consumed domestically, with a marginal quantity exported annually. Coal provides about 15% of Zong's electricity production. In fiscal year 2012–13, 386 million tonnes of coal was mined, and 13 million tonnes exported.


Zong has a large road and motorway network. The TBD million kilometers of paved road are one of the major means of transportation. Like most of East Fosia, Zong has left-hand traffic. A single network of speed, divided, limited-access toll roads connects major cities and are operated by toll-collecting enterprises. New and used cars are inexpensive and both federal and provincial governments have encouraged people to buy hybrid or electric vehicles in recent years.

Rail transport is a major means of transport in Zong. Several private railway companies compete in regional and local passenger transportation markets. Often, strategies of these enterprises contain real estate or department stores next to stations, and many major stations have major department stores near them. There are over 40 metro systems throughout the various cities of Zong. The country is also served by a high speed rail, the domestically produced TTG, operated by the CT umbrella.

There are 162 passenger and 312 total airports in Zong, and flying is a popular way to travel with Zong being the second largest air market in Adonia after Breisland. 23 of the 162 passenger airports had over 10 million passengers in 2017. The largest airports are Huwei–Phokau International Airport, Lifang International Airport and Huwei–Toanto International Airport, all serving over 50 million passengers annually. The largest ports in Zong include the Port of Hong Leng Te, also the largest in Adonia, the Port of Hongto, the Port of Siqiao, the Port of Lidun and the Port of Lifang among others.

Zong's electricity production is dominated by oil and gas at 42%, followed by nuclear at 28%, coal at 15%, hydroelectricity at 10% and wind and solar at 5%. About 78% of Zong's energy is produced domestically, with 22% imported from other countries. Oil is imported mainly from Nusaraya and Sinte. Zong represents the second largest consumer of oil in Adonia after Breisland.
