The Empire of Zotts is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by DIO with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, soft-spoken computers, and state-planned economy. The compassionate population of 5.111 billion Stands are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The World. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Zottsian economy, worth 909 trillion Souls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 177,884 Souls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

It takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer, and cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zotts's national animal is the Owl Bear, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zotts is ranked 164,612th in the world and 255th in Spiritus for Most Armed, with 0.09 Weapons Per Person.
