The Greater Federation of Zeritae is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Alex Totlinot with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate population of 6.616 billion Zeritaens 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Renaek. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Zeritan economy, worth 754 trillion Derndis a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 114,069 Derndis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Billions of Derndis are spent to take high-quality photos of the Harakell Nebula, abortions are carried out secretly in shady backstreet clinics, a generation of children conceived in hell and born in strife is growing up inside government-run care villages, and employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zeritae's national animal is the Harakell, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Tecodianism.

Zeritae is ranked 202,191st in the world and 44th in The Graveyard for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -19.77 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
