The Empire of Zarogovnia is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 557 million Zarogovnians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zaraetlingrad. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Zarogovnian economy, worth 22.5 trillion Sparvitzes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming and Information Technology. Average income is 40,395 Sparvitzes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Zarogovnians incessantly needle their doctors for relief, the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, and the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zarogovnia's national animal is the Giant Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zarogovnia is ranked 171,428th in the world and 674th in The Communist Bloc for Fattest Citizens, with 8.08 Obesity Rate.
