“For the Love of Zarquon!!”
Regional Influence: Eminence Grise
Location: Antarctic Oasis
The Empire of Zarquon Froods is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Great Prophet Zarquon with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.547 billion enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 88%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Tourism.
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 well under control, 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.
