The Democratic Republic of Zlatitsa is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its enslaved workforce, fear of technology, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 453 million Zlatitsans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magdalena Dilova. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.9%.

The powerhouse Zlatitsan economy, worth 40.4 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 89,202 bitcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 287,365 per year while the poor average 20,956, a ratio of 13.7 to 1.

Soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers, pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, traffic tickets are punishable by 9000 push-ups, and the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zlatitsa's national animal is the elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Zlatitsa is ranked 64,692nd in the world and 37th in The Democratika for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 42,014.27 Standard Monetary Units.
