The Immortal Empire of Zarkenis Ultima is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Enlightened Rozel Asheron with an even hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, parental licensing program, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate population of 24.623 billion Zarkenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 86.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Zarkenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,924 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 118,779 Crystal Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear", up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on, and edutainment video games are taking Zarkenis Ultima's students to the next level. 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 7,151st in the world and 3rd in The Council of The Multiverse for Smartest Citizens, with 108.67 quips per hour.
