OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Empire of Zarquon Froods is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Great Prophet Zarquon with an even hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 13.116 billion Zarquon Froodsians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and the Environment. The average income tax rate is 91%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, the government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and the government encourages conflict abroad to increase arms sales. 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, and its currency is the Liffer.

Zarquon Froods is ranked 52nd in Antarctic Oasis and 103,037th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -14 on the Hayek Index.
