The Socialist Confederation of Zeorus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Isaac Wood with a fair hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 13.751 billion Zeorites 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Religion & Spirituality and Commerce are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lehen. The average income tax rate is 96%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Zeorus Blood Tithe, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and the nation has an international reputation for compassion. Crime is totally unknown. Zeorus's national animal is the grizzly bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Satua, and its currency is the Equiliant.

Zeorus is ranked 210th in Equilism and 107,223rd in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -16 on the Hayek Index.
