The Dominion of Thus Sprach Zarathustra is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Karl Frache with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.024 billion Zoroastrians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Curia Julia City. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Thus Sprach Zarathustran economy, worth a remarkable 2,765 trillion Lindens a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 306,459 Lindens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, Zoroastrians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks, preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, and space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Thus Sprach Zarathustra. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thus Sprach Zarathustra's national animal is the Hunter Killer Drone, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Nietzsche.

Thus Sprach Zarathustra is ranked 51,841st in the world and 1,170th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,824.05 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
