The Armed Republic of Zaelith is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lexi Zaelin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, vat-grown people, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.831 billion Zaelithians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zael. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Zaelithian economy, worth 883 trillion Zils a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 230,725 Zils, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has become a pariah for giving pirates letters of marque, sick days are on the rise, economics is a shrinking field, and every fourth child is born with flippers instead of hands. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Zaelith's national animal is the Roadkill, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zaelith is ranked 134,867th in the world and 4,866th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,131.63 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
