The People's Republic of Zdravstvuite is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Wicked Dog of the North with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 21.577 billion Zdravstvuiteans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zdravstvuite City. The average income tax rate is 47%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways, and vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zdravstvuite's national animal is the siberian llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the llama.

Zdravstvuite is ranked 4,535th in the Rejected Realms and 69,163rd in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -7 on the Hayek Index.
