The Meritocracy of Zuriath is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Linjin Mai Quanpeng with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.483 billion Zuriathians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eternal City of Bhan-Kran. The average income tax rate is 56.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Zuriathian economy, worth 555 trillion mhons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 101,239 mhons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government defends a woman's right to choose, chickens roam the streets freely, old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, and parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend. Crime is totally unknown. Zuriath's national animal is the Great Dragon Heojin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Horokonism.

Zuriath is ranked 118,328th in the world and 3,131st in the West Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,530.1 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
