The Empire of Zerocs is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Vassili Simo with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 3.882 billion Zerocsians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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 94.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Zerocsian economy, worth 492 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 126,992 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly, on-duty Air Zerocs flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, and the government only announces the deaths of its members when it's convenient. 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 71,435th in the world and 3,786th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 39.87 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
