The Plutocratic Banana Republic of Zerentopia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by King CEO President Johan Liebert with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, anti-smoking policies, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.04 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, pro-business, 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 5,251 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, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 475,640 Braxes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,454,781 per year while the poor average 4,282, a ratio of 1,040 to 1.

Hazmat suits are a common Zerentopian garb, at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, distrust of taps has many people bathing only with bottled mineral water, and scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished. 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 99th in the world and 7th in the Rejected Realms for Fattest Citizens, with 98.52 Obesity Rate.
