Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Zerocs is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Vassili Simo with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 3.304 billion Zerocsians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Datlof. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Zerocsian economy, worth 412 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 124,807 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project, it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, visiting dignitaries often take advantage of strict reparation policies by stubbing their toes, and a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zerocs's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zerocs is ranked 30,255th in the world and 1,231st in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 194 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
