The Plutocratic Banana Republic of Zerentopia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King CEO President Johan Liebert with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, enslaved workforce, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.715 billion Zerentopias are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Zerentopian economy, worth a remarkable 8,877 trillion Braxes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 501,131 Braxes, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, boot polish is the favourite lip gloss of entry-level corporate workers, the government is a law unto itself, and the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Zerentopia's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Money.

Zerentopia is ranked 279,769th in the world and 5,946th in The North Pacific for Nicest Citizens, with 0.05 average smiles per day.
