The Republic of Zephyrisia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Edmund Drake with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.232 billion Zephyrisians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leiden. The average income tax rate is 53.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zephyrine economy, worth 129 trillion Ducats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 105,493 Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Teachers prefer to give 'Maybe, Maybe Not' tests when dealing with sensitive subjects, supermarkets must refund spoilt milk even six months after the sale, light entertainment isn't dead, and the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zephyrisia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Reformed Catholicism.

Zephyrisia is ranked 81,487th in the world and 63rd in The Western Isles for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,052.1 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
