Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Enlightened Despotism of Kzaria is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Kalánkal Yaun I with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 7.822 billion Kzariosi are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kzarian economy, worth 965 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 123,391 Riyols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government pours millions of Riyols into rehabilitation programs annually, alleyways are now mostly used for illegal drug deals rather than illegal surgical procedures, Harry Potter conventions are closely watched by the government for any signs of 'dueling', and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. 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 15,612th in the world and 40th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,099.4 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
