Overview Factbook Dispatches Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

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 museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 10.307 billion Zocrans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Public Transport 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 frighteningly efficient Zocran economy, worth a remarkable 1,111 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 Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 107,827 Zurcais, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

Both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, parents often ask to see a credit report before lending money to their own children, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", and advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references. 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 20,217th in the world and 1st in United Alliances for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 201.78 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
