The GD Militia of Zather is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its public floggings, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 16.801 billion Zatherians 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 Environment, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Zatherian economy, worth 820 trillion IOUS a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 48,842 IOUS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, surveillance cameras are banned, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, and retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zather's national animal is the Capitalist, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zather is ranked 49,681st in the world and 39th in Greater Dienstad for Most Developed, scoring 65.56 on the Human Development Index.
