The Red Hegemony of Zepplien is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Fleet Admiral Natashova 50067 with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 25.282 billion Zeps are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlantica. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The all-consuming Zepplienese economy, worth a remarkable 5,532 trillion Private Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 218,842 Private Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens have never heard foreign radio, mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance, the Zepplienese Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, and in its new More is More campaign the government advertises obese men and women posing coquettishly with baked goods to spare their blushes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zepplien's national animal is the Turtle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Communism.

Zepplien is ranked 27,841st in the world and 1,039th in Lazarus for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 292,227 Standard Monetary Units.
