The Free Land of Zerphen is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.112 billion Zerphenians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Zerphenian economy, worth 104 trillion zecks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 93,979 zecks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, cigarettes are dead-cheap, and students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak. Crime is totally unknown. Zerphen's national animal is the not snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zerphen is ranked 20,590th in the world and 110th in The Internationale for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 15,851.6 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
