The Union of Zaeli is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Zel Roberts with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 2.104 billion Zaelians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xerum. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zaelian economy, worth 274 trillion Zaelian Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 130,239 Zaelian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Only fully-fledged members of MENSA are allowed to vote, promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service, shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Zaeli, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zaeli's national animal is the Great Zaelian Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zaeli is ranked 63,826th in the world and 1,780th in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 274 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
