The Federal Republic of Zyrcrestia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by its president with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.868 billion Zyrcrestians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government concentrates mainly on Education, although the Environment and Defence are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zyrtulai. The average income tax rate is 4%. An almost nonexistent private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, eminent domain has been abolished, people eagerly queue days at A&E to wait for their free healthcare, and the government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 currency is the zyrce.

Zyrcrestia is ranked 897th in 10000 Islands and 104,831st in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring -2 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
