Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Imperial Republic of Zyrcrestia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by its chancellor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The democratic population of 11.013 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 medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, with Defense, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zyrtulai. The average income tax rate is 27.4%.

The very strong Zyrcrestian economy, worth 800 trillion zyrces a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 72,687 zyrces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Abortions are routinely performed in Zyrcrestia's hospitals, nursing mothers are often arrested for indecent exposure, the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Zyrcrestia, and photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in its chancellor's bedroom. 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.

Zyrcrestia is ranked 573rd in 10000 Islands and 49,655th in the world for Most Armed, scoring -0.834 on the Magnum-Eastwood Ordnance Scale.
