The Zyvexian Dictatorship of Zaklen is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Peter Zyvex with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.278 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 98.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Zaklenite economy, worth a remarkable 2,219 trillion Graces a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Tourism, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 196,803 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.
