Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Zeternia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Thomas W Dexter with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, infamous sell-swords, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.733 billion Zeternians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zeternia City. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Zeternian economy, worth 892 trillion Zets a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,592 Zets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, government buildings are being cleansed for anything that might have racist connotations, and the nation's government buildings are remarkable for being ugly concrete boxes. 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 146,769th in the world and 7,347th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -19.39 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
