Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Republic of Zatrela is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Chairman of State Annias with a fair hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.251 billion Zatrelans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Izlia. The average income tax rate is 82.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zatrelan economy, worth 170 trillion Zatrelan Zenas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 136,490 Zatrelan Zenas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, Chairman of State Annias's speeches are beloved by insomniacs, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", and Zatrelan police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests. Crime is totally unknown. Zatrela's national animal is the Zatrelan Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zatrela is ranked 7,337th in the world and 428th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 194.49 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
