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 museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 28.644 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 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 20,838 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 727,485 credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,079,862 per year while the poor average 202,682, a ratio of 10.3 to 1.

Cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, young people crowd pizza parlors praying to 'The Supreme Pizza, His Immaculate Munchiness', and the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. 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 147th in Wysteria and 143,460th in the world for Lowest Crime Rates, scoring -415.395 on the Relative Freedom From Crime Index.
