The Fiefdom of Zeu is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, ritual sacrifices, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, devout population of 537 million Zeuans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Johns. The average income tax rate is 29.4%.

The sizeable but inefficient Zeuan economy, worth 31.7 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 59,081 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

It's a marvellous night for a moon dance as the sparks on your home start to rise, homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities, the military perceives nations hit by natural disasters as "easy pickings", and friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zeu's national animal is the Kaiser Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Zeu is ranked 90,387th in the world and 3,230th in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 4.07 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
