Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Socialist Confederation of Zeorus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Isaac Wood with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.272 billion Zeorusians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — is primarily concerned with Education, with Spirituality, Welfare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lehen. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Zeorusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,562 trillion Equiliants a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 90,464 Equiliants, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Lehen for fear of causing a fuss, Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, tie-dye has been outlawed for being 'too occult', and cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry. Crime is totally unknown. Zeorus's national animal is the grizzly bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zeorusian Orthodoxy.

Zeorus is ranked 179,441st in the world and 126th in Equilism for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -22.32 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
