The Immortal Empire of Zarkenis Ultima is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Enlightened Rozel Asheron with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 18.237 billion Zarkenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous 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 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Zarkenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,969 trillion Crystal Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 107,981 Crystal Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The wealthiest parts of the country receive the most government spending, foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, and concussed Feral Oneball players cannot remember their lineup position. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 73,084th in the world and 2nd in Unitys Alliance for Largest Black Market, with 535 billion Standard Monetary Units.
