The Armed Republic of Zebrena is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Wise Leader Augustian Anacoppolis with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, compulsory military service, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.565 billion Zebrenics are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zebrenan Government Citadel. The average income tax rate is 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Zebrenan economy, worth 432 trillion lire a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 94,830 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, the government spends billions to protect Zebrena from a disaster that is one in a million, Zebrena's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, and the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zebrena's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Zebrena is ranked 201,506th in the world and 5,341st in the Rejected Realms for Most Politically Free, scoring 21.86 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
