Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Holy Armed Republic of Zerconus is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Zerrec Zageth Lazin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.405 billion Zerconites are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 86.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Zerconusian economy, worth a remarkable 3,230 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 310,511 Diamonds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The Coast Guard is pioneering a quixotic program to train fish, toilet paper is considered a non-essential item in the embargo against Brasilistan, fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government, and wounded veterans can only get prosthetics if they agree to become walking billboards for the arms industry. 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 145,584th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -218 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
