The Armed Republic of Zstansia is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 452 million Zstansai enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Obabika. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Zstansian economy, worth 36.7 trillion Zstansian dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is 81,178 Zstansian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, riots have broken out as a water shortage threatens Zstansia's stability, bins outnumber trees in city parks, and a generation of children conceived in hell and born in strife is growing up inside government-run care villages. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zstansia's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zstansia is ranked 247,989th in the world and 328th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Most Primitive, scoring -103.58 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
