The People's Republic of Zatrela is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Chairman of State Annias with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.646 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Izlia. The average income tax rate is 86.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zatrelan economy, worth 221 trillion Zatrelan Zenas 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 134,559 Zatrelan Zenas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tuba players are paid to quietly whisper into their instruments, scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Zatrelan Eagle, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, and people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler'. 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 132,299th in the world and 6,789th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -6.93 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
