The Empire of Wese Zippopiteradgil is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Overlord Apu Abuhabuhai with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5 billion Wese Zippopiteradgilians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Silvern City. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wese Zippopiteradgilian economy, worth a remarkable 1,426 trillion shares 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 285,208 shares, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, the national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Wese Zippopiteradgil's national animal is the Megasloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Eternal Chess Club.

Wese Zippopiteradgil is ranked 12,713th in the world and 542nd in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 6,122.75 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
