The Imperial Republic of Zyrcrestia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by its chancellor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 14.36 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, outspoken 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Zyrcrestian economy, worth a remarkable 2,745 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 191,164 zyrces, with the richest citizens earning 9.1 times as much as the poorest.

Prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes, government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, an increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity, and people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 158,236th in the world and 936th in 10000 Islands for Most Devout, with 6.96 Prayers Per Hour.
