The Tertian Empire of Zarkanians is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Colonel 187 with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.346 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Natria Proper. The average income tax rate is 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Information Technology.

Business is adjusting to new gender equality policies in the workplace, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, the world outside is only known of in folklore, and stranded astronauts hitch rides on foreign spacecraft to get home. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Zarkanians's national animal is the Terenivian Blackbird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is Imperial Worship, and its currency is the Yuriase.

Zarkanians is ranked 17th in Delicious Friends and 119,117th in the world for Nudest, with 4 Cheeks per Square Mile.
