The Republic of Zupla is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Leon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, unlimited-speed roads, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.452 billion Zuplans 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 Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pax. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zuplan economy, worth a remarkable 1,106 trillion Zuplan Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 171,535 Zuplan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Pax" t-shirts, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, and older citizens lament over the loss of law and order. Crime is totally unknown. Zupla's national animal is the Gray Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zupla is ranked 5,403rd in the world and 325th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 93.23 on the Human Development Index.
