The Republic of Zip380 is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.955 billion Zip380ians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 63.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Zip380ian economy, worth 123 trillion dollars 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 large, well-organized black market in Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 63,215 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Six-year-old children playing dress-up are viewed with suspicion, some members of Parliament are illiterate, the fattest folk in Zip380 look to be the happiest ones, and battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zip380's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zip380 is ranked 22,388th in the world and 1,194th in Lazarus for Largest Black Market, with 16.5 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
