The Imperial Republic of Zyrcrestia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by its chancellor with a fair hand, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, parental licensing program, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 13.533 billion Zyrcrestians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Defense, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zyrtulai. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Zyrcrestian economy, worth a remarkable 2,258 trillion zyrces a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 166,891 zyrces, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Agricultural employees work for peanuts, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, and the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zyrcrestia's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Zyrcrestia is ranked 909th in the world and 28th in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 96.93 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
