The Queen's State of Zaranel is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-working, democratic population of 13.939 billion Zaranelians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Spirituality, and Social Policy. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.5%.

The powerhouse Zaranelian economy, worth 498 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Soda Sales. Average income is 35,745 betales, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 118,975 per year while the poor average 8,002, a ratio of 14.9 to 1.

Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Zaranel's national animal is the deer.

Zaranel is ranked 193,251st in the world and 7th in Port Vila for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -8.94 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
