The Socialist Confederation of Zeorus is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Isaac Wood with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.351 billion Zeorusians 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.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry, Spirituality, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Defense and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lehen. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zeorusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,245 trillion Equiliants a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 86,753 Equiliants, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, and drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government. Crime is totally unknown. Zeorus's national animal is the grizzly bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Zeorusian Orthodoxy.

Zeorus is ranked 17th in Equilism and 5,523rd in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 83 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
