The Republic of Zeternia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Thomas W Dexter with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.274 billion Zeternians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zeternia City. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Zeternian economy, worth a remarkable 2,375 trillion Zets a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 178,990 Zets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

New government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, Thomas W Dexter is famed for giving great back rubs, and the number of judges has tripled in recent months. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zeternia's national animal is the Flying Ham, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zeternia is ranked 203,172nd in the world and 8,880th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -531.93 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
