The Technocracy of Zarax is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Zarax with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 19.469 billion Zaraxians 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Zaraxian economy, worth a remarkable 5,372 trillion Assets a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 275,975 Assets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A third of Zaraxians are e-certified CEOs, high school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers, sex changes are routinely performed at Zarax's hospitals, and abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zarax's national animal is the Sandworm of Dune, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zarax is ranked 24,312th in the world and 538th in Balder for Nudest, with 216.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
