The Tertian Empire of Zarkanians is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Colonel 187 with an iron fist, and renowned for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.966 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 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Information Technology.

The sound of wooden legs echo throughout Zarkanians after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, the government provides its citizenry with the same mass produced rations, prosecutors routinely call transplant doctors as 'expert witnesses' in burglary cases, and people regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed. 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 1st in Delicious Friends and 638th in the world for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 20 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
