Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Zerocs is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Vassili Simo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, prohibition of alcohol, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 2.567 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 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zerocsian economy, worth 322 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 125,634 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The decommissioned tank divisions of other nations are being bought up en masse by Zerocs, politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets, there's never enough space in space, and state dairy cow's milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small caliber bullets. 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 143,406th in the world and 7,175th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -14.76 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
