The United Republic of Zeritae is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Alex Totlinot with an even hand, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 6.756 billion Zeritans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Renaek. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Zeritan economy, worth 780 trillion Derndis a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,459 Derndis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pawn shop reality shows dominate basic cable, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zeritae's national animal is the Harakell, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Tecodianism.

Zeritae is ranked 79,419th in the world and 16th in Katzen for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,681.13 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
