The Great Empire of Zalfornisia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Alford De Safburg with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-working, cynical population of 1.373 billion Zalfornisians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salfor. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Zalfornisian economy, worth 112 trillion Potato Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,176 Potato Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Zalfornisians caught jaywalking often have their houses seized by the police, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, Alford De Safburg's Dreadnought-class tankbuster limousine is said to have more ammunition than the entire Brancalandian Army, and Zalfornisian husbands are dead good at fathering kids. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zalfornisia's national animal is the Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is None.

Zalfornisia is ranked 141,600th in the world and 141st in Spiritus for Most Armed, with 0.3 Weapons Per Person.
