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 iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.101 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, well-organized 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 85.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Zerconusian economy, worth a remarkable 3,200 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 316,832 Diamonds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Badger populations thrive as dogs are slaughtered in the millions, the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, Talon Pass spends billions upgrading public transport, 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 5,027th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 4 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
