The United Republic of Zeritae is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Alex Totlinot with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 7.261 billion Zeritans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Renaek. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Zeritan economy, worth 846 trillion Derndis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 116,533 Derndis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
There's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, sheepish teenagers are making eye contact with their parents for the first time in a decade during state-enforced 'no-phones hour', the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits, and government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 Tecodianism.
