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 barren, inhospitable landscape, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.318 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 3,920 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 379,987 Yuriases, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The military has declared war on all religious influence, daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter, political activists are routinely executed, and a The Apartment Block Tourist Association survey has rated Zarkanians #1 for number twos. 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 49,306th in the world and 20th in The Apartment Block for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 51.62 Whatever.
