The Republic of Zeternia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Thomas W Dexter with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.294 billion Zeternians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zeternia City. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Zeternian economy, worth a remarkable 2,378 trillion Zets a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 178,888 Zets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation is compulsory, workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Thomas W Dexter to meetings with foreign heads of state. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zeternia's national animal is the Flying Ham, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zeternia is ranked 206,095th in the world and 9,117th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -14.68 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
