The Constitutional Empire of Zurkerx is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Dmitri Covasku III with a fair hand, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, keen interest in outer space, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 22.482 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 government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. 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 14,256 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 634,114 Zureus, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,008,671 per year while the poor average 78,869, a ratio of 38.1 to 1.

Glamping Zurks won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, Zurkerx recently hosted the least successful trade negotiations since The Phantom Menace, President Dmitri Covasku III is considering changing the Zurk flag to one with more glitter, and students in Zurkerx's schools rarely attend their classes. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 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 95th in the world and 1st in Zentari for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 17,861.88 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
