The Unified Federal Technopublic of Zorcor is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alexander Zápolya with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 13.387 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 34.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Zorcorian economy, worth a remarkable 3,115 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 232,719 Imperial Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay, and fat-shaming is now public policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 2,375th in the world and 1st in Ultranus for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
