The State of Zarbik is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Noval with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.686 billion Zarbikians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vik Noviora. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Zarbikian economy, worth a remarkable 1,822 trillion Atzzes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 388,852 Atzzes, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,314,433 per year while the poor average 29,921, a ratio of 77.3 to 1.

Student exchange programs are in trouble as everyone wants to leave but no-one wants to come, solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, the end of autumn is celebrated with a bonfire of designer bags, and drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Zarbik's national animal is the Beaver, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Zarbik is ranked 160,782nd in the world and 10th in Just relax for Fattest Citizens, with 9.83 Obesity Rate.
