The United Republic of Zeritae is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Alex Totlinot with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and parental licensing program. The compassionate population of 6.768 billion Zeritans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Zeritan economy, worth 784 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 115,852 Derndis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, and the government enforces a policy of 'from each according to their ability, to each according to the available budget'. 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.

Zeritae is ranked 23,844th in the world and 6th in Katzen for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 52.44 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
