The Republican Empire of New Garzah is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by God-Emperor Sovie Varzhauis with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.838 billion Garzians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Education and Law & Order are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taezrat Ghertaa. The average income tax rate is 89%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Tourism and Gambling.

College students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, and discarded pennies litter the streets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Garzah's national animal is the neir, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is radical agnosticism, and its currency is the Krezh.

New Garzah is ranked 9th in Skyhaven and 38,182nd in the world for Best Weather, with 9 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
