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 aversion to nipples, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 17.988 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of To. The average income tax rate is 2.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zocran economy, worth a remarkable 1,996 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, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 110,976 Zurcais, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, when shaking hands with foreign leaders Chancellor Howard Lewis Derby wears an armoured gauntlet, and the "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, 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 190,843rd in the world and 10th in United Alliances for Most Conservative, scoring 30.07 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
