The Republic of Zupla is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Leon with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.88 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 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zuplan economy, worth a remarkable 1,157 trillion Zuplan Dollars a year, is 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 168,269 Zuplan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Several inches are being added to first class seating, sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps, and moonshine has made a resurgence. 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 29,226th in the world and 782nd in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 208.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
