The Republic of Zip471 is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.126 billion Zip471ians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 47.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Zip471ian economy, worth 151 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,260 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Calling Leader a tyrant is seen as the ultimate compliment, jaywalking is punishable by public flogging, teenagers stay out into the wee hours of the morning "stargazing", and the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zip471's national animal is the falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Zip471 is ranked 238,357th in the world and 930th in Nation of Islam for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -8.37 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
