The Commonwealth of Zenrak is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 930 million Zenrakians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Verlin. The average income tax rate is 19.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Zenrakian economy, worth 89.9 trillion Atzzes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,695 Atzzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Many politicians are having to do a hard day's work for the first time in their careers, the people are famous throughout the region for their perfect yellow teeth, liberals and conservatives try to disqualify each other's candidates on the grounds that "their ideas would never work in the real world", and teenagers stay out into the wee hours of the morning "stargazing". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zenrak's national animal is the Beaver, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Zenrak is ranked 62,450th in the world and 18th in Callista for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,803.65 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
