The Constitutional Monarchy of Zippan is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Herizu Kitaroshi with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.195 billion Zippanians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Edokyo. The average income tax rate is 70%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Zippan is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, Cranes are frequently shot for looking at people 'in a funny way', and Crane is one of the most popular forenames in Zippan. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zippan's national animal is the Crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Kinyen.

Zippan is ranked 239th in British Isles and 109,221st in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -37 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
