The Armed Republic of Zaelith is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lexi Zaelin with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, pith helmet sales, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.458 billion Zaelithians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zael. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Zaelithian economy, worth 499 trillion Zils a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 203,190 Zils, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,703,436 per year while the poor average 4,650, a ratio of 366 to 1.
Only the brainiest citizens become academics, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, tumbleweeds made of litter adorn city streets, and you can get married in sickness and in health but not internationally. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Zaelith's national animal is the Roadkill, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
