LeaderAlfold Kreigen


The National Republic of Zeiling is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Alfold Kreigen with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.049 billion Zeilingians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Budaresa. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Zeilingian economy, worth 293 trillion Danubes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 143,422 Danubes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

What happens in court stays in court, the government builds houses for foreign newcomers, teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, and devotion to God is only skin-deep. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zeiling's national animal is the gungan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zeiling is ranked 4,580th in the world and 2nd in New Eastern Europe for Most Developed, scoring 94.46 on the Human Development Index.
