The United Republic of Zeritae is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Alex Totlinot with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 8.415 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 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Zeritan economy, worth 986 trillion Derndis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 117,215 Derndis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, young schoolchildren pledge allegiance to One Nation Under Bum Indivisible By Poo, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, and criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 224,524th in the world and 3rd in Nitrepza for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -8.49 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
