The Red Scare of Zarvarza is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Rom Zarvarza with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, lack of airports, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 9.642 billion Zarvarzans 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.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt individuals prioritizes Industry, with Spirituality also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Enochia. Income tax is unheard of.
The all-consuming Zarvarzan economy, worth a remarkable 1,347 trillion Crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 139,732 Crowns, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.
Marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, prisons are crowded with possible terrorist suspects, and the government is pouring billions into replacement brains. Crime is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Zarvarza's national animal is the Flying Tree Monkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Order of Enoch.
