The Republic of Zeternia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Thomas W Dexter with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.225 billion Zeternians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zeternia City. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Zeternian economy, worth a remarkable 3,370 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 Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 195,701 Zets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Where there's smoke there's the Zeternian Forestry Department, thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks, the Treasury has been accused of flushing money down the toilet, and children wondering what happens to pets after they die are shown where the compost heap is. 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 1,253rd in the world and 54th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 22,876.39 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
