Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Enlightened Despotism of Kzaria is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Kalánkal Yaun I with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, national health service, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 7.607 billion Kzariosi are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zaméniyól. The average income tax rate is 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kzarian economy, worth 920 trillion Riyols a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 121,021 Riyols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A Renegade Islands Alliance Tourist Association survey has rated Kzaria #1 for number twos, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, and 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kzaria's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Great Kzar Enlightenment.

Kzaria is ranked 19,454th in the world and 53rd in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,368.34 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
