The Republic of Ziptron is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Zelleman Ziptronista with an even hand, and renowned for its devotion to social welfare. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 10.382 billion 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 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 95%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in Ziptron's many privately-owned prisons, condemned prisoners spend hours a day sitting in lotus position looking perplexed, the government is avowedly atheist, and Max Barry is this year's Miss Ziptron. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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.

Ziptron is ranked 306th in The Coalition of Democratic Nations and 80,855th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.177 Stalins.
