The Eight United States of Zukchiva is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mina Kingsworth with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, state-planned economy, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.053 billion Zukchivans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seveni. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zukchivan economy, worth 519 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 128,247 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, the national security service are a bunch of crooks, and people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy. Crime is totally unknown. Zukchiva's national animal is the Yaestrovakian White Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zukchiva is ranked 153,487th in the world and 7,031st in The East Pacific for Most Devout, with 4.93 Prayers Per Hour.
