The Constitutional Empire of Zurkerx is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Dmitri Covasku III with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 22.743 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 aren't funded at all. 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 14,425 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 634,276 Zureus, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,016,571 per year while the poor average 78,539, a ratio of 38.4 to 1.

Major cities run on potato batteries, scientific progress marches ever forward with the first ever launch of a cheeseburger into space, if you go into the woods today you're sure of a big surprise, and Big Agriculture has the government by the nuts. 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 1,038th in the world and 1st in Zentari for Most Patriotic, with 76.87 Flags saluted per person per day.
