The Republic of Zeternia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Thomas W Dexter with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.742 billion Zeternians 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 enormous 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 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Zeternian economy, worth a remarkable 2,637 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 common. Average income is an impressive 178,930 Zets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, the nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs, and superfoods are often seen as supervillains. 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 1,640th in the world and 101st in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,633.75 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
