The Armed Federation of Zarulia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.274 billion Zarulians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quantico. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Zarulian economy, worth 237 trillion Zarulian dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 186,151 Zarulian dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 627,909 per year while the poor average 40,852, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Foreign nations often blame poverty and terrorism on Zarulian selfishness, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, and lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs. Crime is totally unknown. Zarulia's national animal is the Rabbit, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is all 6208 of them.

Zarulia is ranked 85,384th in the world and 720th in Europe for Lowest Crime Rates, with 64.65 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
