|Leader||Prime Minister Zel Roberts|
|Animal||Great Zaelian Lion|
The Greater Socialist Republic of Zaeli is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Zel Roberts with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 882 million Zaelians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xerum. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Zaelian economy, worth 88.5 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 100,345 Zaelian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, anti-government web sites are springing up, and a recent political debate came to a quick close once the ruling party decreed it was "just plain silly". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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.
