The Republic of Zip62 is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, prohibition of alcohol, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 226 million Zip62ians 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 prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.2%.

The very strong Zip62ian economy, worth 13.6 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 60,043 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Residents of new housing subdivisions complain about the total absence of supermarkets and restaurants, the National Archive now covers square miles of warehouses in order to accommodate its new stone tablets system, the doctor has cold hands, and EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Zip62's national animal is the Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Zip62 is ranked 119,171st in the world and 2,283rd in the West Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 13.6 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
