The Sexy Spacefaring Shogunate of The Zocalo is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Sheridan with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 26.118 billion Babylonians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Defence, Commerce, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blue Sector. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.

The country spends an increasingly large amount of its budget on grand scale projects of pharaonic proportions in a bid to boost the economy, soldiers are equipped with multi-million credit battlesuits, citizens are frequently held up at gunpoint by their local pizza delivery boys, and marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. The Zocalo's national animal is the Pakmara, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Foundationism, and its currency is the credit.

The Zocalo is ranked 11th in Wysteria and 41st in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 33 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
