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 vat-grown people, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.161 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 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zarkanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,816 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 375,643 Yuriases, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, citizens are abandoning their homes en masse in a widespread panic over asbestos, people choose marriage partners by buying a lottery ticket, and Colonel 187 claims to be the epitome of family values. 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 178,469th in the world and 58th in The Apartment Block for Least Corrupt Governments, with 4.98 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
