The Hellfire of Zeeworld is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 626 million Zeeworldians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Murder City. The average income tax rate is 54.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Zeeworldian economy, worth 65.6 trillion Legs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 104,803 Legs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The military has gone fission for more funding, to 'cut off family ties' is no longer just a phrase, minefields are being deployed along the border to discourage potential emigrants from trying to leave, and camo-patterned plush comfort blankets are standard issue for commandos. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Zeeworld's national animal is the Demon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Zeeworld is ranked 156,285th in the world and 189th in The Black Hawks for Rudest Citizens, with 40.22 Insults Per Minute.
