The Sexy Spacefaring Shogunate of The Zocalo is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Sheridan with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 25.226 billion The Zocaloans 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.

Education and welfare spending are on the rise, CDs are regularly copy-protected, scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, and one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. The Zocalo's national animal is the Pakmara, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Foundationism, and its currency is the credit.

The Zocalo is ranked 163rd in Wysteria and 112,165th in the world for Best Weather, with -3,811 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
