The Socialist Council Republic of Zestria is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by The National Governance Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 896 million Zestrians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Varuun. The average income tax rate is 83.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zestrian economy, worth 102 trillion Vestras 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 114,776 Vestras, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, the nation's youth would rather watch paint dry than the news, sex changes are routinely performed at Zestria's hospitals, and only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile. Crime is totally unknown. Zestria's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Zestria is ranked 220,375th in the world and 138th in Social Technocratic Union for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -14.51 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
