The Holy Empire of Zyrcrestia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Chancellor with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 23.111 billion Zyrcrestians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zyrtulai. The average income tax rate is 65.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zyrcrestian economy, worth a remarkable 5,003 trillion zyrces a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 216,483 zyrces, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gift hampers filled with delicious beef jerky are sent to newly communist nations, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, there is a thriving underground gay scene, and lobster tastes best when it is red. 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 Catholicism.

Zyrcrestia is ranked 239,769th in the world and 954th in 10000 Islands for Most Primitive, scoring -479.55 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
