The Federated Island Republic of Zocra is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Howard Lewis Derby with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, infamous sell-swords, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 20.008 billion Zocrans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Defense, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of To. The average income tax rate is 3.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zocran economy, worth a remarkable 2,231 trillion Zurcais a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,536 Zurcais, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Light entertainment isn't dead, the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, and the national security service are a bunch of crooks. Crime is relatively low. Zocra's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Zocra is ranked 222,507th in the world and 8th in United Alliances for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.63 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
