Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Imperium Sanctus of Zarkari is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Liege Lord Ebil with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, public floggings, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.188 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.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Les Catacombes de Virycéon. The average income tax rate is 1.4%.

The strong Zarkarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,024 trillion T'zar Em Bes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 125,149 T'zar Em Bes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, abortions are routinely performed in Zarkari's hospitals, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', and citizens must pay to enjoy Zarkari's pristine beaches. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 6,444th in the South Pacific and 141,234th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -53 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
