Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Zeternia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Thomas W Dexter with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.451 billion Zeternians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zeternia City. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Zeternian economy, worth a remarkable 1,063 trillion Zets 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 142,673 Zets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, some Zeternian athletes have defected to Blackacre after being denied the chance to compete in international sporting events, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, and the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zeternia's national animal is the Flying Ham, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zeternia is ranked 1,141st in the world and 46th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 11,926.91 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
