The Immortal Empire of Zarkenis Ultima is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Enlightened Rozel Asheron with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 24.439 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 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Zarkenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,891 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 118,296 Crystal Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There are no more heroes any more, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, and the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear". 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 238,118th in the world and 12th in The Council of The Multiverse for Most Patriotic, with 1.92 flags saluted per person per day.
