The Republic of Zulrich is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.751 billion Zulrichers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Staisroden. The average income tax rate is 7.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Zulrichian economy, worth 328 trillion Zulricher Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 119,288 Zulricher Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign spirits are hard to find due to an abundance of "Cletus and Jim Bob's Homemade Zulrichian Moonshine", citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, and a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League. Crime is almost non-existent. Zulrich's national animal is the Zulricher Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zulrich is ranked 19,623rd in the world and 59th in Europe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 117.5 on the Hayek Index.
