Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Sexy Spacefaring Shogunate of The Zocalo is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Sheridan with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, digital currency, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 26.71 billion Babylonians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blue Sector. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient The Zocaloan economy, worth an astonishing 18,841 trillion credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 705,408 credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,745,383 per year while the poor average 70,189, a ratio of 53.4 to 1.

Government popup ads are springing up like weeds, the national sporting identity is represented by a talking burger and a singing smartphone, Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Zocalo's national animal is the Pakmara, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Foundationism.

The Zocalo is ranked 8th in Wysteria and 11th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 5,431 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
