The Divine Empire of Zirilrath is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Optimus Validus Caesar with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 26.667 billion Zirilrathians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aureus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Zirilrathian economy, worth a remarkable 7,627 trillion aurums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 286,028 aurums, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,040,634 per year while the poor average 13,173, a ratio of 154 to 1.

Penal labor is a de facto death sentence, 9 out of 10 consumers think that vitamins can cure cancer, fitness to teach sport is proven by urinating the furthest up a wall, and the nation is famous for bravely sending wave after wave of its soldiers until the enemy runs out of bullets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Zirilrath's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Satorism.

Zirilrath is ranked 1,367th in the world and 1st in The Commonwealth of Crowns for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 154.91 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
