The Armed Republic of Zebrena is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Wise Leader Augustian Anacoppolis with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.562 billion Zebrenans 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zebrenan Government Citadel. The average income tax rate is 70.0%.

The very strong Zebrenan economy, worth 127 trillion lire a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,556 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, life-saving resuscitation is denied based on decades-old teenage diaries that declare "I want to die before I get old", chess defeat has made The Wise Leader Augustian Anacoppolis the laughingstock of dictators and grandmasters alike, and doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion. 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 can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Secularism.

Zebrena is ranked 117,175th in the world and 5,293rd in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 32.11 on the Rand Index.
