The Holy Empire of Zyrcrestia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Chancellor with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, free-roaming dinosaurs, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 23.093 billion Zyrcrestians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zyrtulai. The average income tax rate is 64.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zyrcrestian economy, worth a remarkable 4,986 trillion zyrces a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 215,936 zyrces, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, and teen boys and girls find stick-figure-aided lectures on their comradestruation emphasises socialist unity more than biology. Crime is totally unknown. Zyrcrestia's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Zyrcrestia is ranked 2,138th in the world and 46th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 97.6 on the Human Development Index.
