The Winged Republic of Zarathoft is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Tarlvich with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 30.257 billion Zarithians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government prioritizes Law & Order, with Education and Defense also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Theros. The average income tax rate is 1.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Zarithian economy, worth a remarkable 6,594 trillion Krets a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 217,933 Krets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Lobbyists are trying to convince government to recategorize most natural disasters as "non-critical naturogenic inconveniences", obstetricians are not allowed to publish ultrasound pictures of fetuses in medical journals, prison walls have had to be modified to keep parkour-trained criminals from escaping, and if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Zarithian satellites can detect it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zarathoft's national animal is the otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Mishghan.

Zarathoft is ranked 10,747th in the world and 7th in The Milky Way Galaxy for Highest Poor Incomes, with 99,630 Standard Monetary Units.
