The Empire of Zerocs is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Vassili Simo with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 4.591 billion Zerocsians 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, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Datlof. The average income tax rate is 94.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Zerocsian economy, worth 587 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 128,075 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Zerocs as a reminder of their "special relationship", and social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 150,294th in the world and 7,445th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.4 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
