The Federated Island Republic of Zocra is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Howard Lewis Derby with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 13.122 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 Defense, although Education 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 Tiio. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.5%.

The all-consuming Zocran economy, worth a remarkable 1,492 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, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 113,709 Zurcais, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 326,486 per year while the poor average 31,491, a ratio of 10.4 to 1.

Schoolchildren must pass a six-month Ethics and Safety Committee Assessment before they are allowed to mix baking soda and vinegar, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, employees are told they can avoid traffic jams by starting work at 4 AM, and morale within the seismologist community has hit rock bottom. 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 166,908th in the world and 5th in United Alliances for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -13.42 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
