The Totalitarian Democracy of Zaklen is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by the Interim Government with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.719 billion Zaklenites are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Religion & Spirituality, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zakopolis. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Gambling industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Automobile Manufacturing.

Corrupt Party bureaucrats are being voted out of office in overwhelming numbers, the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams, children are sent to either religious or secular schools, and recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, its national religion is Zaklenite Christianity, and its currency is the Grace.

Zaklen is ranked 5th in Zaklenite Territories and 87,428th in the world for Best Weather, with -12 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
