The Constitutional Empire of Zurkerx is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Dmitri Covasku III with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, unlimited-speed roads, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 18.766 billion Zurks live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moskova. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Zurk economy, worth an astonishing 11,311 trillion Zureus a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 602,784 Zureus, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,792,439 per year while the poor average 40,318, a ratio of 94.1 to 1.

Every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor, the fattest folk in Zurkerx look to be the happiest ones, the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, and edutainment video games are taking Zurkerx's students to the next level. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Zurkerx's national animal is the Buffalo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Zurkerx is ranked 151,401st in the world and 11th in Zentari for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.26 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
