The Republic of Zupla is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Leon with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 8.321 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 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zuplan economy, worth a remarkable 1,395 trillion Zuplan Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 167,728 Zuplan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall, relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, and foreign spirits are hard to find due to an abundance of "Cletus and Jim Bob's Homemade Zuplan Moonshine". 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 6,786th in the world and 365th in The North Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 37.58 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
