The Free Land of Zerphen is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 615 million Zerphenians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 79.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Zerphenian economy, worth 59.0 trillion zecks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 95,965 zecks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In musicals everybody's a little bit racist, any reference to a higher being is punished with public shaming, students consistently complain that the wi-fi ate their homework, and school plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment. Crime is totally unknown. Zerphen's national animal is the not snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zerphen is ranked 74,717th in the world and 395th in The Internationale for Lowest Crime Rates, with 65.33 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
