The Republic of Z0pu is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leo DeZ0pu with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 11.097 billion Z0puans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Z0pu City. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Z0puan economy, worth 800 trillion z0s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 72,142 z0s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians, and all government communication requires the imprimatur of the Truth Police. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Z0pu's national animal is the Honey Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Z0pu is ranked 187,124th in the world and 8,093rd in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -6.81 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
