The Republic of Zebrium is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 131 million Zebriumians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The tiny government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. The average income tax rate is 8.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Zebriumian economy, worth 7.85 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Pizza Delivery, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,960 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Foreign casinos have trouble paying fans who bet on the Zebrium City Crocodiles' triumph against long odds, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, babies living in poverty are told to take responsibility for their own fortunes, and the army is spending millions cloning khaki-colored dinosaurs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zebrium's national animal is the crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
