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 remarkable for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 26.576 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 18,686 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 703,145 credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,237,879 per year while the poor average 52,473, a ratio of 80.8 to 1.

Strange lights seen in the sky are officially regarded as weather balloons or hoaxes and nothing else, the government is outsourcing itself, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses. 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 154th in Wysteria and 125,823rd in the world for Stupidest Citizens, scoring -30 on the Average Edu-UNtellignce® Test Score.
