The Tertian Ascendancy of Zarkanians is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Colonel 187 with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.003 billion Zarkanians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Natria Proper. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zarkanian economy, worth a remarkable 4,215 trillion Yuriases a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 383,104 Yuriases, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, billions are being spent on a new island airport, and personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zarkanians's national animal is the Outer Leviathan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Predescendant Nonconceptualism.

Zarkanians is ranked 148,583rd in the world and 1st in OC Forum Redux Discord Chat Region for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.42 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
