The Confederacy of Zyvetskistaahn is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Council of Executors with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 18.802 billion Zyvetens enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zyveta. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Zyveten economy, worth a remarkable 1,155 trillion Zyvetenmarks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 61,477 Zyvetenmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, public intoxication has decreased ever since fraternities were banned, the nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal, and mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zyvetskistaahn's national animal is the Liffen forest rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zyveten Orthodoxy.

Zyvetskistaahn is ranked 233,248th in the world and 9,407th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -10.65 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
