The Republic of Zataras is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.053 billion Zatarasians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Catalonia. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Zatarasian economy, worth 179 trillion dollars 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 mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 87,647 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Convicted criminals are given free limo rides to jail, agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, the only women behind bars are barmaids, and the nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zataras's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
