The People's Republic of Zetesiby is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Desidério Arkes with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.852 billion Zetesibyians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 41.7%.

The large but inefficient Zetesibyian economy, worth 315 trillion Afoires a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Soda Sales industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 32,068 Afoires, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Sniffer dogs check train passengers for body odour, dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, heartwarming sentiments are even hotter now, and toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zetesiby's national animal is the flying-fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

Zetesiby is ranked 231,000th in the world and 251st in The Union of Democratic States for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 16.44 Tourists Per Hour.
