The Federated Island Republic of Zocra is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Howard Lewis Derby with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 17.328 billion Zocrans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, although Defense and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of To. The average income tax rate is 2.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zocran economy, worth a remarkable 1,861 trillion Zurcais a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 107,408 Zurcais, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is automatically assumed to be the source of all unmarked weapons, most Zocran video games are banned in other countries, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, and going on a diet invalidates your passport. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Zocra's national animal is the Dairy Cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Zocra is ranked 67,745th in the world and 3rd in United Alliances for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 1.21 Bank.
