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, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 22.267 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of To. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Zocran economy, worth a remarkable 2,574 trillion Zurcais a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 115,641 Zurcais, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 564,701 per year while the poor average 13,616, a ratio of 41.5 to 1.

The inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, the freedom to be free is always just out of reach, the Zocran Intelligence Agency has put 'Project Quantum Refrigerator' on hold indefinitely, and withdrawal of support for drug addicts is leaving many with cold sweats. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 4,357th in the world and 1st in United Alliances for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 22 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
