The Soviet Socialist Republic of Zetona is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by CPSU with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.152 billion Zetonas are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of XYZ*. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Zetonas economy, worth 249 trillion Wooden rubles 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 Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 115,819 Wooden rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Oddly patriotic flash mobs spontaneously sing the national anthem, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, the government's new priority is citizens' access to cat videos, and science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zetona's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Light future.
