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 barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 14.976 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, prioritizes 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 Tiio. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.6%.

The all-consuming Zocran economy, worth a remarkable 1,724 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, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 115,156 Zurcais, with the richest citizens earning 9.0 times as much as the poorest.

A faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Zocrans, builders across Zocra are blocked up with orders for new public loos, and victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians. 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 81,297th in the world and 2nd in United Alliances for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 1,756.71 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
