The Armed Republic of Zaelith is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lexi Zaelin with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, deadly medical pandemics, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.925 billion Zaelithians 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, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zael. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Zaelithian economy, worth 637 trillion Zils a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 218,068 Zils, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,300,249 per year while the poor average 16,707, a ratio of 77.8 to 1.
Anyone who so much as looks at Royalty without the proper amount of deference is punished, the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams, the single fish caught by Zaelithian fishers last year is cited as evidence of Zaelith's thriving fisheries, and Zaelith isn't what it used to be. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Zaelith's national animal is the Roadkill, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
