The Sovereign University of Zetaopalatopia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Edwin Elwood with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, parental licensing program, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 10.189 billion Zetaopalatopians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Administration. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Zetaopalatopian economy, worth a remarkable 1,976 trillion Merits a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 193,955 Merits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People find it hard to relate to soldiers because of the dehumanising masks they wear, posters on 'Zetaopalatopian Values' advise against being proud of Zetaopalatopia, an opal a day keeps the negative thoughts at bay, and it can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zetaopalatopia's national animal is the Timber Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Cult of The Hidden Moon.

Zetaopalatopia is ranked 113,057th in the world and 3,538th in Lazarus for Rudest Citizens, with 49.89 Insults Per Minute.
