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 renowned for its parental licensing program, daily referendums, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 10.764 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, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Talon Pass. The average income tax rate is 92.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Zerconusian economy, worth a remarkable 3,244 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 301,424 Diamonds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion, people regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Zerconus after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. 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 10th in Firefly and 117,163rd in the world for Stupidest Citizens, scoring -17 on the Average Edu-UNtellignce® Test Score.
