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, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.612 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 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zarkanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,958 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 343,540 Yuriases, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, millions of devastated 7-year-olds are denied astronaut and ballerina training, the state has declared war on the environment and environmentalists by association, and wounded veterans can only get prosthetics if they agree to become walking billboards for the arms industry. 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 1st in Delicious Friends and 1,776th in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 8 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
