Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Provisional Government of Kzaria is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by National Committee of Universal Freedom with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, rampant corporate plagiarism, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 8.186 billion Kzariosi are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

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 Isinyol. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kzarian economy, worth 980 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 119,827 Riyols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, superstitious folk make gestures to ward off evil whenever they see a refrigeration unit, the secret service is working overtime to find anyone publishing unauthorized material about National Committee of Universal Freedom, and fathers are free to sell their daughters to whomever they choose. 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 Ei'il Kʂɑɑri.

Kzaria is ranked 15,932nd in the world and 54th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Most Influential, scoring 1,496 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
