The Sexy Spacefaring Shogunate of The Zocalo is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Sheridan with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 25.469 billion The Zocaloans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 71%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.

Employers are gradually adapting to the alien premise of paying wages to their workers, skateparks can be found in every city, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and 1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. 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 154th in Wysteria and 111,971st in the world for Safest, scoring -784.4 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
