The Imperium Sanctus of Zarkari is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Liege Lord Ebil with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.672 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 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Gambling industry.

Female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all, the arms industry is strictly regulated, and much of Zarkari's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence. 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 246th in the South Pacific and 14,280th in the world for Largest Defense Forces, with 87 Unexploded Ordnance per Square Mile.
