The Theocracy of Zauragosa is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its closed borders, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 779 million Zauragosans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Balanjar. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.9%.

The Zauragosan economy, worth 41.3 trillion drachmas a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 53,057 drachmas, with the richest citizens earning 7.6 times as much as the poorest.

Family bonding sessions are considered immoral and are banned, public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women, Leader claims to be the epitome of family values, and courtrooms can be a little sketchy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zauragosa's national animal is the White Heron, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zauragosa is ranked 42,891st in the world and 9th in The Maritimes for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,334.07 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
