The People's Republic of Zetesiby is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by President Desidério Arkes with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.237 billion Zetesibyians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.2%.

The Zetesibyian economy, worth 408 trillion Afoires a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Soda Sales industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,886 Afoires, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, subsidisation of Big Pharma has stopped many corporate executives from having to sell their second homes, people who make the leader's blood boil get boiled, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zetesiby's national animal is the flying-fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

Zetesiby is ranked 62,542nd in the world and 30th in The Union of Democratic States for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 6.24 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
