The Republic of Zecret Lords is a massive, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service. The quiet, industrious population of 1.179 billion Zecret Lordsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 18.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Zecret Lordsian economy, worth 55.7 trillion DEmarkian Praisers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Cheese Exports, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 47,214 DEmarkian Praisers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The tawdry celebrity gossip section has moved to the front page of most newspapers, the government is constantly playing a game of four-dimensional economic chess with health insurance firms, polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, and product development labs spend most of their money fighting the government's patent infringement lawsuits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zecret Lords's national animal is the DEmark Polar Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zecret Lords is ranked 88,195th in the world and 320th in Europe for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 3,382.87 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
