The Republic of Zelty is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, prohibition of alcohol, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.379 billion Zeltans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, 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 Zelt. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Zeltyian economy, worth 175 trillion Zeltan Pounds a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 73,738 Zeltan Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians, religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, child adoption by homosexual couples has been outlawed, and the government has little issue with allowing its citizens to languish in foreign jails. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zelty's national animal is the Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zelty is ranked 62,916th in the world and 1st in Brothers in Law for Most Primitive, scoring -35.49 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
