The Republic of Ziptron is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Zelleman Ziptronista with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 10.985 billion Ziptronians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Words. The average income tax rate is 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, highschool principals regularly send armed truancy patrols to drag problem students to school, and bizarre-looking creatures called 'house catdogs' dominate wildlife preserves. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ziptron's national animal is the house cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the beck.
