The People's Republic of Zaeli is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Zel Roberts with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 2.227 billion Zaelians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xerum. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zaelian economy, worth 292 trillion Zaelian Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 131,130 Zaelian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People's charity begins and ends at home, old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and interest in globalism never flags. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zaeli's national animal is the Great Zaelian Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zaeli is ranked 6,862nd in the world and 424th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 92.39 on the Human Development Index.
