The Armada of The Zravvisk is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Valstrath Dragua with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate population of 9.253 billion Zravvisks are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, 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 41.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Zravvisk economy, worth 892 trillion minerals a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,461 minerals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Traffic cops are puzzled to see that nobody exceeds the speed limits, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, and there's a hole in the heart of every Zravvisk city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 112,311th in the world and 6th in Cymopolia for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 50 Whatever.
