The Confederacy of Zyvetskistaahn is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Council of Executors with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 18.37 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it 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 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Zyveten economy, worth a remarkable 1,139 trillion Zyvetenmarks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is 62,033 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 43,960th in the world and 1,561st in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 76.95 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
