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, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 16.574 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 minute government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, although Defense and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tiio. The average income tax rate is 1.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Zocran economy, worth a remarkable 1,877 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 113,288 Zurcais, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Scout campfire sing-a-longs tend to focus on the evils of antitrust legislation, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, and bike rage is all the rage. 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 Dairy Cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Zocra is ranked 134,643rd in the world and 4th in United Alliances for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.82 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
