Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Sexy Spacefaring Shogunate of The Zocalo is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Sheridan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 27.285 billion Babylonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken 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 19,395 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 710,841 credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,403,270 per year while the poor average 49,511, a ratio of 88.9 to 1.

The government is spending billions of taxpayer credits to support the Arms Manufacturing industry, citizens drive tank-like vehicles with mounted machine guns, the dead are minced up and sold to people in burger form, and Pakmara is one of the most popular forenames in The Zocalo. 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 7th in Wysteria and 11th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 5,587 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
