The Republic of Zip243 is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.605 billion Zip243ians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 26.3%.

The powerhouse Zip243ian economy, worth 235 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 90,539 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Credit scores fluctuate wildly with every change of government, a blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, children are encouraged to fail at school so as not to appear too enlightened, and lion-reed-vulture-hand-reed-mouth is how Leader is spelt now. Crime is a problem. Zip243's national animal is the falcon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Zip243 is ranked 29,765th in the world and 128th in Nation of Islam for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,921.84 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
