The Constitutional Empire of Zurkerx is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Dmitri Covasku III with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 25.016 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 primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare 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 an astonishing 15,882 trillion Zureus 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 Retail, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 634,901 Zureus, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,019,542 per year while the poor average 78,616, a ratio of 38.4 to 1.

Computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, it's considered providence that the political lexicon contains a syrup of company slogans, and wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations". Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Zurkerx's national animal is the Buffalo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Zurkerx is ranked 3,766th in the world and 1st in Zentari for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 20,304.19 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
