The Republic of Zupla is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Leon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, complete lack of prisons, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.711 billion Zuplans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, 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 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zuplan economy, worth 808 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 171,613 Zuplan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces", televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", and there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation. 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 107,146th in the world and 5,567th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 73.13 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
