LeaderTaari Tagayama


The Empire of Zuuri is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Taari Tagayama with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 8.906 billion Zuurians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sokar. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Zuurian economy, worth 720 trillion Rins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 80,915 Rins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, Taari Tagayama reduces citizens' commute times by giving away their homes, a weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, and advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zuuri's national animal is the Cardinal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zuuri is ranked 9,926th in the world and 13th in Equiterra for Nicest Citizens, with 32.54 average smiles per day.
