The People's Republic of Zuopai is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Ernesto with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, daily referendums, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed population of 1.519 billion Zuopaians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rénmen. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Zuopaian economy, worth 275 trillion Pazzes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 181,308 Pazzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Extreme political groups are outlawed, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Paz mansions, and jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zuopai's national animal is the Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Zuopai is ranked 8,303rd in the world and 146th in The Communist Bloc for Smartest Citizens, with 101.9 quips per hour.
