The Federated Island Republic of Zocra is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Howard Lewis Derby with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, aversion to nipples, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 11.647 billion Zocrans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Education and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tiio. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Zocran economy, worth a remarkable 1,317 trillion Zurcais a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 113,096 Zurcais, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 321,053 per year while the poor average 31,822, a ratio of 10.1 to 1.

No personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, 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 18,083rd in the world and 1st in United Alliances for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 272.23 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
