The Just Relaxing Factbook Hold of Zalcara is a massive, genial nation, notable for its compulsory military service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 3.539 billion Zalcarans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zali. The average income tax rate is 35.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Zalcaran economy, worth 299 trillion Atzzes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 84,589 Atzzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night, government employees have reverted to carrier pigeon due to never-ending virus scans, business ambassadors offer bong tokes to foreign leaders, and political activists are routinely executed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zalcara's national animal is the The Apple, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zalcara is ranked 37,257th in the world and 70th in Institute of Cellulose for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 156.69 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
