The Evil Wizard of Zargothrax is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Goblin King with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, rampant corporate plagiarism, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.666 billion Thraxians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dundee. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.3%.

The strong Thraxian economy, worth 185 trillion Amulets a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 69,538 Amulets, with the richest citizens earning 9.6 times as much as the poorest.

Nations across the world are quick to praise Goblin King's good looks and intellectual prowess, the nation's student exchange programs are something of a one way street, immigrants complain that natives keep coming over and taking their jobs, and a popular Thraxian saying is 'wishing upon a fallen jet engine'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zargothrax's national animal is the undead unicorn and its national religion is Cosmic Infinity.

Zargothrax is ranked 59,493rd in the world and 9th in Autism Spectrum for Highest Economic Output, with 185 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
