The Kingdom of Zapiron is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its smutty television, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 565 million Zapinese have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital City. The average income tax rate is 58.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zapinese economy, worth 62.6 trillion Razas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 110,748 Razas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Centuries-old marble buildings are being torn down and replaced with corrugated steel wind tunnels, anti-government web sites are springing up, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, and smoking is banned in public areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zapiron's national animal is the Leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zapiron is ranked 12,857th in the world and 632nd in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,258.52 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
