Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Sexy Spacefaring Shogunate of The Zocalo is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Sheridan with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 30.714 billion Babylonians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blue Sector. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Zocaloan economy, worth an astonishing 22,554 trillion credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 734,355 credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,183,262 per year while the poor average 107,575, a ratio of 29.6 to 1.

The country is littered with broken homes, the nation is known abroad for fast food and nothing else, schoolyard sandboxes resemble ashtrays due to the large number of cigarette butts, and the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Zocalo's national animal is the Pakmara, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Foundationism.

The Zocalo is ranked 31,015th in the world and 8th in Babylon 5 for Most Stationary, with 300.52940488328 Days.
