The Imperium Sanctus of Zarkari is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Liege Lord Ebil with an iron fist, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.386 billion Zarkarians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 94%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Gambling industry.

The country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, organ donation is compulsory, the insurance industry is outlawed, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. 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 2,445th in the South Pacific and 76,740th in the world for Most Politically Free, scoring 34 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
