The Tsarist Federation of The Ziron Empire is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Hannibal Koslov with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 12.668 billion Zironians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkadia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Zironian economy, worth a remarkable 4,283 trillion Crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 338,135 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, bizarre-looking creatures called 'Dovedogs' dominate wildlife preserves, the number of judges has tripled in recent months, and robotic spouses prove to be just as imperfect as flesh and blood ones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Ziron Empire's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Stoicism.

The Ziron Empire is ranked 1,539th in the world and 3rd in Camerania for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 8,170.17 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
