The Imperial Republic of Zyrcrestia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by its chancellor with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 16.028 billion Zyrcrestians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Education, with Defense, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zyrtulai. The average income tax rate is 31.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Zyrcrestian economy, worth a remarkable 3,385 trillion zyrces a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 211,224 zyrces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, dictionary sales have hit an all-time high, the government has pinkie-promised never to use its veto power except in an emergency, and the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly. Crime is totally unknown. Zyrcrestia's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Zyrcrestia is ranked 5,521st in the world and 136th in 10000 Islands for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 362.59 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
