The Kingdom of Zhalfir is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 548 million Zhalfirin are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Spirituality, and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ki'pamu. The average income tax rate is 74.0%.

The Zhalfirin economy, worth 34.0 trillion dominarian coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 61,976 dominarian coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, Air Zhalfir tickets have reached sky-high prices due to a complete monopoly on air travel, pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit, and Elephant is one of the most popular forenames in Zhalfir. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zhalfir's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zhalfir is ranked 147,530th in the world and 14th in The High Wilderness for Highest Drug Use, scoring 4.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
