The Republic of Zupla is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Leon with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, otherworldly petting zoo, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 2.654 billion Zuplans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pax. The average income tax rate is 88.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zuplan economy, worth 448 trillion Zuplan Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 169,116 Zuplan Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

There's no such thing as bad publicity, the thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. Crime is totally unknown. Zupla's national animal is the Gray Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zupla is ranked 81,623rd in the world and 4,834th in The North Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 1,076.1 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
