The Wackerie Shackerie of Zacherie is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Zacherie with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, vat-grown people, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.374 billion Zacherieans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Healthcare, Administration, and Spirituality are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elutherophobia Central Command. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.8%.

The very strong Zacheriean economy, worth 500 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 78,491 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 275,958 per year while the poor average 16,178, a ratio of 17.1 to 1.

Elutherophobia Central Command's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Van Garceball fields, politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities, and victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians. Crime is almost non-existent, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Zacherie's national animal is the Van Garce, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Curphothian.

Zacherie is ranked 73,017th in the world and 1st in An Incidentally Hazardous Area for Largest Governments, scoring 15.3 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
