Location: the South Pacific

Regional Influence: Squire


The Republic of Zataras is a massive, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.212 billion Zatarasians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Catalonia. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Zatarasian economy, worth 89.0 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 73,455 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, the nation was recently voted "most likely to betray its allies", a major religion has been named as Zataras's national religion, and preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zataras's national animal is the Domestic Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zataras is ranked 9,300th in the world and 299th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 11,184.43 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
