The Republic of Zip63 is a huge, pleasant nation, notable for its compulsory military service, infamous sell-swords, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, devout population of 937 million Zip63ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 45.1%.

The Zip63ian economy, worth 39.3 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 41,993 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, Zip63's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, chess hooliganism is on the rise after the banning of organised sports, and naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zip63's national animal is the Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Zip63 is ranked 123,372nd in the world and 6,254th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -2.12 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
