The Queen's State of Zymurgyhaven is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-working, democratic population of 17.798 billion Zymurgyhavenians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Welfare, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Law & Order and Defense receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.7%.

The thriving Zymurgyhavenian economy, worth 836 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 47,023 betales, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 143,647 per year while the poor average 11,931, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Voting is voluntary and all tariffs have been abolished. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Zymurgyhaven's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Zymurgyhaven is ranked 114,166th in the world and 6th in London for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 303.7 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
