The Dominion of Thus Sprach Zarathustra is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Karl Frache with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, sprawling nuclear power plants, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 8.244 billion Zoroastrians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Curia Julia City. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Thus Sprach Zarathustran economy, worth a remarkable 2,364 trillion Lindens a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 286,780 Lindens, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

Hunters often become the hunted, it's rare to find an unchewed pencil, a positive pregnancy test doubles as a visa, and the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thus Sprach Zarathustra's national animal is the Hunter Killer Drone, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Nietzsche.

Thus Sprach Zarathustra is ranked 176,340th in the world and 4,617th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.69 Crimes Per Hour.
