The People's Republic of United Zealandic is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kyōsuke with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.883 billion United Zealandicians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xraescia. The average income tax rate is 83.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zealandicians economy, worth 910 trillion Xriks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 315,917 Xriks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is attempting to impose a new national language on the public, tabloids coo over Kyōsuke's expected child, an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, and social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. United Zealandic's national animal is the Harpy eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

United Zealandic is ranked 1,661st in the world and 2nd in The Leftist Assembly for Highest Average Incomes, with 315,917.98 Standard Monetary Units.
