The Constitutional Empire of Zurkerx is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Dmitri Covasku III with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, digital currency, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 15.513 billion Zurks live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moskova. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Zurk economy, worth a remarkable 8,439 trillion Zurkxes 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 Soda Sales, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is a breathtaking 544,014 Zurkxes, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,146,505 per year while the poor average 44,808, a ratio of 70.2 to 1.

Lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants, a third of Zurks are e-certified CEOs, and old age is the nation's leading method of execution. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Zurkerx's national animal is the Buffalo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Zurkerx is ranked 35,584th in the world and 6th in Zentari for Highest Poor Incomes, with 44,808.28 Standard Monetary Units.
