The Sultanate of Zargovia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Zargov with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, public floggings, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 33.444 billion Zargovians 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 minute government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Education, although Environment is also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zargovia City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Zargovian economy, worth a remarkable 9,976 trillion Zartans a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 298,318 Zartans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Bambi has been banned, "Mad Max: Returning Again to Barrydrome" is this year's unexpected summer blockbuster, the Zargovia Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, and the government makes bereaved siblings into bereaved orphans. Crime is totally unknown. Zargovia's national animal is the Murloc, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Shamanism.

Zargovia is ranked 1,129th in the world and 9th in Yggdrasil for Most Influential, scoring 79,560 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
