The Glorious Most High Empire of Zaxarium is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by God-Emperor Zaxares with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 31.912 billion Zaxarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pax Zaxarium. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Zaxariumian economy, worth a remarkable 8,844 trillion taels a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 277,157 taels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Big Brother is still watching even when your big brother is dead, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, and the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zaxarium's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Obedience to the God-Emperor.

Zaxarium is ranked 580th in the world and 4th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 9,844.37 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
