The Andenian Celestial Island of Zebul is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Sol Metta with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.092 billion Zebulians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zebulon. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zebulian economy, worth 771 trillion Lightons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 151,608 Lightons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, the rich and poor vomit into separate bags, the "blue screen of death" forces many trials to be either aborted or restarted, and you can call your arthritic immigrant neighbour for all your roof-tiling and guttering needs. Crime is totally unknown. Zebul's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Hermeticism.

Zebul is ranked 4,931st in the world and 1st in First World Order for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 16,998.54 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
