The Constitutional Monarchy of Zermal is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 647 million Zermolians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Monberry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Zermalian economy, worth 61.9 trillion Galics a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,742 Galics, with the richest citizens earning 9.2 times as much as the poorest.

National magistrates in Monberry are overwhelmed with cases of petty larceny and attempted witchcraft, the beauty of coastal towns is marred only slightly by all the closed-down storefronts, anti-government web sites are springing up, and high school bands practice by moonlight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zermal's national animal is the Narwhal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Zermal is ranked 26,720th in the world and 2nd in Russia for Safest, scoring 109.18 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
