Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Imperial Republic of Zyrcrestia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by its chancellor with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 13.116 billion Zyrcrestians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized 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 32.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Zyrcrestian economy, worth a remarkable 1,954 trillion zyrces a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 149,001 zyrces, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Contestants on Zyrcrestia's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, the government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad, and the nation's leading climatologists are investigating animal flatulence in efforts to reduce methane emissions. 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 19,239th in the world and 226th in 10000 Islands for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 4,535.43 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
