The Sultanate of Zargovia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Zargov with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 31.423 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, with Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. 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 9,518 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 302,900 Zartans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Legislators must raise their hands if they want to speak, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Zargov to meetings with foreign heads of state, political speeches that drill deep into bureaucratic fine detail could be said to be a little boring, and the government loves seeing the little people fight. 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 106,932nd in the world and 108th in Yggdrasil for Most Pro-Market, scoring 37.56 on the Rand Index.
