The Commonwealth of Zarook is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 592 million Zarookians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 18.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Zarookian economy, worth 28.3 trillion Sand Dollars a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,804 Sand Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Zarook as a reminder of their "special relationship", unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, the best doughnut stores have been taken over by foreign police officers, and children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Zarook's national animal is the Sopwith Camel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zarook is ranked 119,962nd in the world and 5,121st in the South Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 64.76 Workforce Participation Rate.
