Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Sexy Spacefaring Shogunate of The Zocalo is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Sheridan with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, unlimited-speed roads, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 27.665 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 19,805 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 715,911 credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,991,204 per year while the poor average 64,111, a ratio of 62.3 to 1.

Artists are pillars of society, the nanny industry has had a boom after maternity leave was recently banned, surfers ride tsunamis of record height and toxicity, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. 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 87th in Wysteria and 56,987th in the world for Most Extreme, scoring 19 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
