The Plutocratic Banana Republic of Zerentopia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King CEO President General Martins with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, zero percent divorce rate, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.554 billion Zerentopians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government 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 6,666 trillion Braxes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 491,884 Braxes, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,701,728 per year while the poor average 45,517, a ratio of 59.4 to 1.

All tariffs have been abolished, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, the government is a law unto itself, and pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. 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 2,507th in the world and 73rd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 58,136.74 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
