|Leader||Chancellor Howard Lewis Derby|
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 keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 18.263 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tíío. The average income tax rate is 2.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Zocran economy, worth a remarkable 2,015 trillion Zurcais a year, 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 110,334 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 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.
