The Federation of Zavea is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Langley with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and national health service. The compassionate, cheerful population of 18.937 billion Zaveans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oured. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Zavean economy, worth a remarkable 7,570 trillion Zavean Standard Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 399,747 Zavean Standard Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Zavea after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, and holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zavea's national animal is the Angel Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zavea is ranked 208,141st in the world and 5,152nd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -82.18 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
