Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Tertian Empire of Zarkanians is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Colonel 187 with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.224 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, moralistic, 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 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zarkanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,816 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 342,491 Yuriases, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government enforces a policy of 'from each according to their ability, to each according to the available budget', the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people", and the nation refuses to provide international aid. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Zarkanians's national animal is the Terenivian Blackbird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Imperial Worship.

Zarkanians is ranked 19th in Delicious Friends and 136,339th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -255 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
