The Cyber-Sea Swashbuckling of Zaphod Beeblebrox I is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Hotblack Desiato with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed population of 8.551 billion Zaphods are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Islington. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Zaphod economy, worth 273 trillion leaves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Soda Sales industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Gambling. Average income is 31,928 leaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Motorbike jousters live young and die fast, heterosexuality is considered positive proof of fitness to parent, scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied the paranoid android, and only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zaphod Beeblebrox I's national animal is the the paranoid android, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is worship of the Great Green Arkleseizure.

Zaphod Beeblebrox I is ranked 42,562nd in the world and 1st in The Pirates for Longest Average Lifespans, with 64.36 Years.
