The Dominion of Thus Sprach Zarathustra is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Karl Frache with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.26 billion Zoroastrians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt 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 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Thus Sprach Zarathustran economy, worth a remarkable 3,707 trillion Lindens a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 361,313 Lindens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Ministers are now allowed to put suggestions in the governmental suggestion box, a violent scene on television results in mass mobilization of the National Guard, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 2,877th in the world and 83rd in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 5,698.02 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
