The Chaotic Empire of Ziroxeut is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by A guy who got lost on the street with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, anti-smoking policies, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.415 billion Ziroxeuterians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Detroit. The average income tax rate is 50.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ziroxeutian economy, worth 216 trillion zixes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,446 zixes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The comic book series 'A guy who got lost on the street and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Ziroxeutian Liberator", and supervisors in Ziroxeut commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ziroxeut's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is dog.

Ziroxeut is ranked 34,745th in the world and 107th in Conch Kingdom for Best Weather, with 127 Meters Of Sunlight.
