The Republic of Zupla is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Leon with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 8.262 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 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zuplan economy, worth a remarkable 1,378 trillion Zuplan Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 166,860 Zuplan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, where your food came from is an unknowable mystery, the government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects, and the election for President Leon's office's janitor is heating up. 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 5,376th in the world and 331st in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 93.63 on the Human Development Index.
