The Republic of Zetavalon is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 822 million Zetavalonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avalon. The average income tax rate is 63.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Zetavalonian economy, worth 85.3 trillion honors a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,751 honors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A five-year-old and a convicted terrorist can sit alongside one another in jury service, healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease, the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, and children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zetavalon's national animal is the maid, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zetavalon is ranked 18,256th in the world and 39th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,194.32 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
