The Sexy Spacefaring Shogunate of The Zocalo is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Sheridan with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 25.988 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.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, much of The Zocalo's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and The Zocalo's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 7th in Wysteria and 18th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 885 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
