Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Tertian Ascendancy of Zarkanians is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Colonel 187 with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, smutty television, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.498 billion Zarkanians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Natria Proper. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zarkanian economy, worth a remarkable 4,005 trillion Yuriases a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 381,508 Yuriases, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Political dissidents are cut off from essential services, curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, and billions are being spent on a new island airport. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zarkanians's national animal is the Outer Leviathan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Predescendant Nonconceptualism.

Zarkanians is ranked 1,023rd in the world and 2nd in The Apartment Block for Lowest Crime Rates, with 145.47 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
