The Imperium Sanctus of Zarkari is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Liege Lord Ebil with an iron fist, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.243 billion Zarkarians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, the Environment, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Les Catacombes de Virycéon. The average income tax rate is 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Gambling industry.

The government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, the lowest age at which one can marry has been recently lowered to 12, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, and Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zarkari's national animal is the Kar'i, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Praetoriani, and its currency is the T'zar Em Be.

Zarkari is ranked 4,229th in the South Pacific and 113,636th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -15 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
