Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Imperium Sanctus of Zarkari is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Liege Lord Ebil with an even hand, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, lack of airports, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 7.816 billion Zarkarians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Les Catacombes de Virycéon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 89.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Zarkarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,500 trillion T'zar Em Bes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 192,029 T'zar Em Bes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 563,456 per year while the poor average 51,590, a ratio of 10.9 to 1.

The government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Zarkari's radio stations, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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, and its national religion is Praetoriani.

Zarkari is ranked 67th in the South Pacific and 4,401st in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 483 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
