The Armada of The Zravvisk is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Valstrath Dragua with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, soft-spoken computers, and strictly enforced bedtime. The cynical population of 3.766 billion Zravvisks are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The minute, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Welfare, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dragua II. The average income tax rate is 5.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Zravvisk economy, worth 229 trillion minerals a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 60,909 minerals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets, lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, and the banshee wail foretells skies of death. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Zravvisk's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Ancestor Veneration.

The Zravvisk is ranked 74,653rd in the world and 3,151st in Balder for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 70.1 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
