The Armed Republic of Zebrena is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Wise Leader Augustian Anacoppolis with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.014 billion Zebrenans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zebrenan Government Citadel. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.0%.

The strong Zebrenan economy, worth 73.4 trillion lire a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 72,359 lire, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Joggers are often arrested for breathing too heavily, all screens are equal but some are more equal than others, barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the Zebrenan Government Citadel Natural History Museum, and the nation's infamous rickshaw ambulances often double as hearses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zebrena's national animal is the swan.

Zebrena is ranked 4,735th in the world and 608th in The East Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 23 Valid Endorsements.
