The Evil Wizard of Zargothrax is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Goblin King with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, pith helmet sales, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.003 billion Thraxians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dundee. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.1%.

The strong Thraxian economy, worth 365 trillion Amulets a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 73,078 Amulets, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 308,127 per year while the poor average 11,230, a ratio of 27.4 to 1.

'Undead Unicornnado 6: You Gotta Be Kidding Me' is this summer's top-grossing movie, the tax department is having withdrawal symptoms, constipated-looking politicians are uptight about potty mouths, and unused plastic recycling bins are being dumped into landfills by the tonne. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zargothrax's national animal is the undead unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cosmic Infinity.

Zargothrax is ranked 54,500th in the world and 13th in Coalition of Crown Albatross for Highest Average Incomes, with 73,078.6 Standard Monetary Units.
