The Great Empire of Zalfornisia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Alford De Safburg with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The cynical population of 1.422 billion Zalfornisians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salfor. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zalfornisian economy, worth 120 trillion Potato Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 84,574 Potato Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Television characters who ask how someone's doing are charged with harassment, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, a government program is underway to revitalize Zalfornisia's beaches, and the only way to escape lengthy prison terms is in a body bag. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zalfornisia's national animal is the Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zalfornisia is ranked 8,745th in the world and 46th in Spiritus for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 49.77 Bank.
