The People's Republic of Zetastan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Zartan Bridgelaw with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.787 billion Zetastanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zeddagrad. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zetastanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,932 trillion Zetastanian Shekels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 299,610 Zetastanian Shekels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Blood stains the floors of the execution room and the hands of the state, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, Zartan Bridgelaw's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, and any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zetastan's national animal is the Cinphaleprus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Zetastan is ranked 18,228th in the world and 413th in The Communist Bloc for Most Income Equality, scoring 72.91 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
