The Republic of Zip377 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.027 billion Zip377ians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Law & Order, although Industry, Education, and Welfare are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.0%.

The powerhouse Zip377ian economy, worth 122 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 60,524 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 221,666 per year while the poor average 11,710, a ratio of 18.9 to 1.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, it's best to decline if Leader offers to buy a round of drinks, a good deed is rewarded with a thank you note attached to a deportation order, and medical lawsuits are out of control. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zip377's national animal is the falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zip377 is ranked 220,387th in the world and 850th in Nation of Islam for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 131.81 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
