The Armed Republic of Zebrena is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Wise Leader Augustian Anacoppolis with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.103 billion Zebrenics 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zebrenan Government Citadel. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Zebrenan economy, worth 283 trillion lire 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 91,451 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, the Zebrenan delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy, and police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints. 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, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Zebrena is ranked 29,933rd in the world and 2nd in Ostrovia for Most Extreme, scoring 32.42 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
