The Sovereign University of Zetaopalatopia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Edwin Elwood with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 14.049 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, Healthcare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Administration. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Zetaopalatopian economy, worth a remarkable 2,780 trillion Merits 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 197,911 Merits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, parents dread their examinations more than their children, the best defense is a good fence, and fashion models are guaranteed to be 100% genuinely as anorexic as they appear on magazine covers. 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 777th in the world and 28th in Lazarus for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 26,396.56 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
