Greater Zeritae

Population3.113 billion

LeaderLeixon Orsaviju


The Social Autocracy of Greater Zeritae is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leixon Orsaviju with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.113 billion Zeritaeans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Administration, although Education, Welfare, and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Renaek. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Zeritaean economy, worth 191 trillion Derndis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Book Publishing, Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 61,376 Derndis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details, the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, and flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Zeritae's national animal is the Harakell, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Greater Zeritae is ranked 219,066th in the world and 5,474th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 23.95 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
