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 deadly medical pandemics, ubiquitous missile silos, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 20.717 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, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, 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 13,127 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 633,666 Zureus, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,452,142 per year while the poor average 59,688, a ratio of 57.8 to 1.

Unemployed political consultants and advertisers spend every election night weeping for the good old days, a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Zurk politicians, mandatory updates on software drivers often bring life to a halt, and evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction. 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 109th in the world and 1st in Zentari for Highest Average Incomes, with 633,666.74 Standard Monetary Units.
