The Allied States of Zeppelia is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.679 billion Zeppelians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 66.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zeppelian economy, worth a remarkable 1,140 trillion gyros a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 200,754 gyros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

If foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to Zeppelia, the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, and city workers have declared that rolling markets aren't good for business after all. Crime is totally unknown. Zeppelia's national animal is the arctic fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Zeppelia is ranked 735th in the world and 507th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 174 Valid Endorsements.
