The Plutocratic Banana Republic of Zerentopia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by King CEO President Johan Liebert with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.892 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 5,163 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 474,033 Braxes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,439,728 per year while the poor average 4,268, a ratio of 1,040 to 1.

Hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, King CEO President Johan Liebert's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, paralegals spend all day Hewlett-Packing attorneys' law briefs, and Zerentopia's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region. 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 243,345th in the world and 7,585th in the Rejected Realms for Most Secular, with 0.93 Atheism Rate.
