The Plutocratic Banana Republic of Zerentopia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King CEO President Johan Liebert with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, triple-decker prams, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.355 billion Zerentopians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Zerentopian economy, worth a remarkable 4,262 trillion Braxes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 455,629 Braxes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,266,830 per year while the poor average 4,109, a ratio of 1,038 to 1.

Human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued, the government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake", and police pull people off the street for even mentioning the word plane. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zerentopia's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Money.

Zerentopia is ranked 205,469th in the world and 5,752nd in the Rejected Realms for Highest Average Tax Rates, with -6.2 Effective Tax Rate.
