The Rogue Nation of Zenithian is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Deimos with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.181 billion Zeniths are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xerexes. The average income tax rate is 71.8%.

The all-consuming Zenithianian economy, worth 865 trillion Pounds 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, Uranium Mining, 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 an impressive 166,968 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work, high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, and in a fit of passion Deimos has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zenithian's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Zenithian is ranked 6,722nd in the world and 5th in The Invaders for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 461.04 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
