The Unified Federal Technopublic of Zorcor is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Alexander Zápolya with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, strictly enforced bedtime, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 13.046 billion Zorcorians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oirtisen. The average income tax rate is 30.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Zorcorian economy, worth a remarkable 3,032 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 232,432 Imperial Credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

There's a lot of smoke from the nation's "green economy", if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Zorcorian satellites can detect it, the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, and the arms industry is strictly regulated. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zorcor's national animal is the Harpy Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Zorcor is ranked 55,049th in the world and 1st in Ultranus for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 2,002.21 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
