The Immortal Empire of Zarkenis Ultima is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Enlightened Rozel Asheron with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and daily referendums. The compassionate population of 19.808 billion Zarkenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xevaris. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Zarkenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,824 trillion Crystal Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 92,107 Crystal Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Large sections of Zarkenis Ultima have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, and a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zarkenis Ultima's national animal is the Feral One, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Griscorean Polytheism.

Zarkenis Ultima is ranked 105,312th in the world and 9th in The Council of The Multiverse for Most Stationary, with 49.92366943772 Days.
