Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Zerocs is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Vassili Simo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 2.963 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 prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. 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 374 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 126,323 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles distance from the National Science Park, and dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia. 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 24,359th in the world and 570th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 501.91549127388 Days.
