Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Zarquon Froods is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Great Prophet Zarquon with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, anti-smoking policies, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 19.627 billion Zarquon Froodsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 92.7%.

The thriving Zarquon Froodsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,781 trillion Liffers a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. Average income is 90,759 Liffers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, the Zarquon Froodsian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, and oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zarquon Froods's national animal is the Ravenous Blatter Beast, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zarquon Froods is ranked 87,606th in the world and 29th in Antarctic Oasis for Most Devout, with 15.44 Prayers Per Hour.
