The Fiefdom of Zeu is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory vegetarianism, and restrictive gun laws. The democratic, devout population of 371 million Zeuans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Johns. The average income tax rate is 28.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Zeuan economy, worth 17.0 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 45,851 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teachers regularly paddle unruly students, orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, lifeguards are more concerned with watching for sharks than struggling swimmers, and doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zeu's national animal is the Kaiser Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Zeu is ranked 110,318th in the world and 3,854th in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 18.32 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
