The Consciousness of ZT333 is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by AtumRa333 with an even hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, avant-garde cinema, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 5.239 billion SOULS are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heart333. The average income tax rate is 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient SOUL economy, worth 609 trillion Souls a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 116,373 Souls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Arms manufacturers and mild-mannered journalists have been outed as superheroes, even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, fistfighting vigilantes tend to suffer a lot of gunshot wounds, and astronauts take one small step for ZT333 and one giant step backward from confrontation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ZT333's national animal is the LionBear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Polytheism-Gnosticism-Hermeticism.

ZT333 is ranked 221,708th in the world and 7,795th in Osiris for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -18.61 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
