The United Republic of Licemia of Zeritae is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate population of 4.5 billion Licemias are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Licemian economy, worth 370 trillion Derndis a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,442 Derndis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, burgers often list "miscellaneous meats" in their ingredients, decongestants have replaced Derndis in street transactions, and Zeritae City's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zeritae's national animal is the Harakell, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Athe-worship.

Zeritae is ranked 91,997th in the world and 55th in Northern Utopia for Largest Black Market, with 245 billion Standard Monetary Units.
