The GD Militia of Zather is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its frequent executions, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 16.952 billion Zatherians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Zatherian economy, worth 829 trillion IOUS a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 48,930 IOUS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, surveillance cameras are banned, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, and retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zather's national animal is the Capitalist, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zather is ranked 211,551st in the world and 57th in Greater Dienstad for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.44 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
