The Armed Republic of Zebrena is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Wise Leader Augustian Anacoppolis with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.327 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, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zebrenan Government Citadel. The average income tax rate is 78.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Zebrenan economy, worth 308 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 92,645 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teen boys and girls find stick-figure-aided lectures on their comradestruation emphasises socialist unity more than biology, there is a heavy social stigma attached to e-cigarettes, all guns must be registered, and government bureaucrats devote many man-hours to trying to measure unquantifiables. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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 166,101st in the world and 3rd in Ostrovia for Most Primitive, scoring -115.26 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
