“For the Love of Zarquon!!”
|Category: Civil Rights Lovefest|
Regional Influence: Eminence Grise
Location: Antarctic Oasis
The Empire of Zarquon Froods is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Great Prophet Zarquon with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, strictly enforced bedtime, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 14.182 billion Zarquon Froodsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 92.0%.
The very strong Zarquon Froodsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,212 trillion Liffers a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. Average income is 85,496 Liffers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.
Photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in The Great Prophet Zarquon's bedroom, there is a dearth of space for new houses, coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, and consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zarquon Froods's national animal is the Ravenous Blatter Beast, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
