LeaderZachariah VII


The Republic of Zachlend is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Zachariah VII with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, soft-spoken computers, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.781 billion Zachlanders are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hamington. The average income tax rate is 55.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Zachlander economy, worth 203 trillion Zooloos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 114,517 Zooloos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The tomato-covered corpses that decorate the nation's cities are a favourite amongst morbid tourists, poverty is disloyal to the Motherland, schoolyard sandboxes resemble ashtrays due to the large number of cigarette butts, and there is a 'turn around' sign at every border entrance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zachlend's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Zachlend is ranked 122,377th in the world and 5,122nd in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 713.5 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
