The Empire of Wese Zippopiteradgil is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Overlord Apu Abuhabuhai with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, smutty television, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.504 billion Wese Zippopiteradgilians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Silvern City. The average income tax rate is 48.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wese Zippopiteradgilian economy, worth 558 trillion shares 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. 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 an amazing 223,154 shares, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wigged-out hunters report playing croquet with the Queen of Hearts, no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, the practice of capital punishment proves divisive, and the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wese Zippopiteradgil's national animal is the Megasloth, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Church of the True Leader.

Wese Zippopiteradgil is ranked 167,557th in the world and 7,533rd in the South Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 26.42 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
