Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Imperial Republic of Zyrcrestia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by its chancellor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 12.759 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, Environment, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zyrtulai. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.0%.

The powerhouse Zyrcrestian economy, worth a remarkable 1,766 trillion zyrces a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 138,484 zyrces, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Students abandon classrooms for online education, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Zyrcrestia's radio stations, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. 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 117,726th in the world and 1,309th in 10000 Islands for Most Authoritarian, with 0.11 Stalins.
