Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Zyvexian Dictatorship of Zaklen is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Peter Zyvex with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.396 billion Zaklenites are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zakopolis. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Zaklenite economy, worth a remarkable 1,653 trillion Graces a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 196,885 Graces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers are authorised to use lethal force to maintain calm in the crash zone, businesses have become paranoid as waves of lawsuits sweep the nation, Snow Leopards with strange deformities like three eyes and tentacles have been seen prancing through the countryside where industrial waste is dumped, and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zaklen's national animal is the Snow Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zaklenite Christianity.

Zaklen is ranked 1st in Zaklenite Territories and 120,100th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -1 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
