The Beautiful Kingdom of Zaibatsu0 is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by NS with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 18.071 billion Zaibatsuians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Scenico. The average income tax rate is 11.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Zaibatsuian economy, worth a remarkable 3,335 trillion Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 184,559 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

The path to inner peace is paved with state-mandated punishment, people with political aspirations study how to make balloon animals, the practice of capital punishment proves divisive, and signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Zaibatsu0's national animal is the cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Zaibatsu0 is ranked 2,312th in the world and 2nd in Sheriffmuir for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 23,588.8 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
