The Tertian Empire of Zarkanians is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Colonel 187 with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, strictly enforced bedtime, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.725 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Zarkanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,512 trillion Yuriases a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 325,192 Yuriases, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios, the nation's drinking water tends to glow green at night, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, and the government funds private schools for intellectually gifted children. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 1st in Delicious Friends and 5,663rd in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 82 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
