The Imperial state of Al zuro is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emporer Al Muhadi with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 3.116 billion Al zuroians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alzer. The average income tax rate is 88.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Al zuroan economy, worth 374 trillion Zurian lire a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,124 Zurian lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The law says it's okay to sell a bomb to a terrorist so long as they promise not to detonate it, Maxtopian Grass flags adorn every college dorm room, romantic sunsets are no longer interrupted by explosions and monstrous roars, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Al zuro after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Al zuro's national animal is the Zurian Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Alzerism.

Al zuro is ranked 12,484th in the world and 656th in Osiris for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,582.72 Tourists Per Hour.
