The Federated Island Republic of Zocra is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Howard Lewis Derby with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 10.509 billion Zocrans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tiio. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Zocran economy, worth a remarkable 1,133 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 107,886 Zurcais, with the richest citizens earning 8.0 times as much as the poorest.

Chancellor Howard Lewis Derby's new android secretary is the latest media darling, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, and giant no-kill traps baited with Bapst Red Ribbon and vintage bicycles have been popping up in back alleys nationwide. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, 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 32,540th in the world and 2nd in United Alliances for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,797.43 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
