The Immortal Empire of Zarkenis Ultima is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Enlightened Rozel Asheron with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate population of 21.732 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 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 85.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Zarkenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,588 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 an impressive 119,102 Crystal Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

National chefs believe that you can eat anything so long as you deep fry it first, heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Crystal Credit treacle machine, relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, and parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend. 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 7,092nd in the world and 4th in The Council of The Multiverse for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 12,639.97 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
