The Interstellar Federation of Zeloria is a massive, safe nation, ruled by the Governing Network and Jet Laserblast with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.202 billion Zelorians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Habital. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zelorian economy, worth 310 trillion MoneyBuxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 140,898 MoneyBuxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every workday begins with group therapy, soldiers are equipped with multi-million MoneyBux battlesuits, in a fit of passion the Governing Network and Jet Laserblast has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, and UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zeloria's national animal is the Dinosaur, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secularism.

Zeloria is ranked 216,344th in the world and 975th in 10000 Islands for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.38 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
