The Constitutional Empire of Zurkerx is a gargantuan, socially progressive 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 17.514 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 dominated by the Department of 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 10,159 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 Soda Sales, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 580,075 Zureus, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,649,564 per year while the poor average 38,799, a ratio of 94.1 to 1.

Chickens roam the streets freely, candidates celebrate "free speech" by spraying champagne all over anyone who shows up to a rally, Zurks refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, and takeaway food bought on the weekend now comes with fifty percent more sweat and tears. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Zurkerx is ranked 40th in the world and 1st in Zentari for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 3.65 million Standard Monetary Units.
