The Republic of Zupla is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Leon with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.418 billion Zuplans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pax. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zuplan economy, worth a remarkable 1,100 trillion Zuplan Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 171,523 Zuplan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms, third world countries are rich in "I Love Pax" t-shirts, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', and court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs. Crime is totally unknown. Zupla's national animal is the Gray Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zupla is ranked 81,848th in the world and 4,504th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.35 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
