Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Holy Armed Republic of Zerconus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Zerrec Zageth Lazin with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, enslaved workforce, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 10.636 billion Zerconites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Talon Pass. The average income tax rate is 90.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Zerconusian economy, worth a remarkable 3,242 trillion Diamonds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 304,897 Diamonds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, civil servants spend most their time carrying out risk assessments for paper cuts, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and the nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zerconus's national animal is the Badger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheists United.

Zerconus is ranked 3rd in Firefly and 5,593rd in the world for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 5 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
