The Kingdom of Zhavn is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by HM The King with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, avowedly heterosexual populace, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 3.637 billion Zhavnos 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 Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trazva. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Zhavnos economy, worth 811 trillion Zhavnos Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 223,065 Zhavnos Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A government program is underway to revitalize Zhavn's beaches, on-duty Air Zhavn flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, and the government pours millions of Zhavnos Dollars into rehabilitation programs annually. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zhavn's national animal is the Tabby Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sunni Islam.

Zhavn is ranked 930th in the world and 28th in the Rejected Realms for Most Pacifist, with 228.52 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
