The Confederacy of Zyvetskistaahn is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Council of Executors with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 16.97 billion Zyvetens love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — 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 81.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Zyveten economy, worth a remarkable 1,024 trillion Zyvetenmarks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 60,397 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 a very well-funded 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 25,970th in the world and 1,250th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 76.83 on the Human Development Index.
