The Armed Federation of Zarulia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.224 billion Zarulians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quantico. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Zarulian economy, worth 223 trillion Zarulian dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 182,720 Zarulian dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 610,183 per year while the poor average 40,705, a ratio of 15.0 to 1.

Companies are turning to trained Rabbits for their most menial jobs, AIs are programmed to deliberately fail the Turing Test to make it easier for humans to turn them off, angry disenfranchised AIs attempt to hijack the bodies of comatose hospital patients, and human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants. Crime is totally unknown. Zarulia's national animal is the Rabbit, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is all 6208 of them.

Zarulia is ranked 9,394th in the world and 43rd in Europe for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 9,404.87 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
