The Holy Orange Conglomeration of Zherid is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its feral children, rampant corporate plagiarism, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.013 billion Zheridians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 41.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Zheridian economy, worth a remarkable 1,146 trillion Balzhes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 228,680 Balzhes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, new funding allows inner city teachers to replace school laptops almost as fast as they get stolen, motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and citizens are prohibited from raising their voice above thirty decibels in commercial districts. Crime is relatively low. Zherid's national animal is the Equestrian pony, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zherid is ranked 255,609th in the world and 6,949th in Lazarus for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.47 bananas ingested per day.
