Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Armed Republic of Zerconus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Zerrec Zageth Lazin with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, strictly enforced bedtime, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 12.055 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 91.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Zerconusian economy, worth a remarkable 3,655 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 303,226 Diamonds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Punitive tariffs protect local industry, self-driving cars obey the road rules even during emergencies, the government spends twice as much reclaiming lost settlements from the sea as it could've on coastal defences, and teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 163,160th in the world and 11th in Firefly for Longest Average Lifespans, with 53.74 Years.
