The Republic of Zip167 is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.246 billion Zip167ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.8%.

The powerhouse Zip167ian economy, worth 161 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 71,791 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

Top-shelf magazines feature risqué centrefold spreads of ladies' wrists, caroling is considered a public disturbance, Maths Professor Barbie is the most popular toy for boys and girls alike, and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zip167's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zip167 is ranked 46,024th in the world and 355th in Nation of Islam for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,322.03 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
