Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Tertian Ascendancy of Zarkanians is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Colonel 187 with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.995 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 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zarkanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,698 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 370,040 Yuriases, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, the government has the power to seize property at will, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, and virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in Natria Proper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. 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 14,687th in the world and 7th in The Apartment Block for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 8,156.47 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
