The Colony of Zhensheng Xue is a huge, safe nation, notable for its digital currency, ban on automobiles, and public floggings. The compassionate, democratic population of 482 million Zhenians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xingyue Zhou. The average income tax rate is 33.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Zhensheng Xuean economy, worth 42.8 trillion Bytleses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 88,846 Bytleses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The ZXAF has poured billions of Bytleses into anti-spaceship defenses to protect Zhensheng Xue against outsiders (Zhensheng Xue has found 1 easter egg), strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Xingyue Zhou, and reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zhensheng Xue's national animal is the Monster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zhensheng Xue is ranked 38,710th in the world and 90th in Refugia for Most Developed, scoring 72.21 on the Human Development Index.
