Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Sexy Spacefaring Shogunate of The Zocalo is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Sheridan with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 26.862 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 19,014 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 707,857 credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,642,713 per year while the poor average 42,260, a ratio of 109 to 1.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Blue Sector Times is sold out, military spending is on the increase, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in President Sheridan's bedroom, and the Pakmara is reportedly extinct. 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 51st in Wysteria and 38,622nd in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 81 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
