The Empire of Zanithia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Dex with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.042 billion Zanithians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Complex. The average income tax rate is 48.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zanithian economy, worth 278 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 136,207 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every conceivable scenic location has been completely booked by couples desperate to marry, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Dex to meetings with foreign heads of state, where there's a will there is usually a password manager, and hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zanithia's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zanithia is ranked 39,575th in the world and 650th in The East Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 5,329.4 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
