The United Kingdom of Zachais is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Zach with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 18.548 billion Zachians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andirfell. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zachian economy, worth a remarkable 1,616 trillion Xronas a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,172 Xronas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, there's a lot of babies crying for milk in the middle of the day, and throwing a sickie is a serious crime. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zachais's national animal is the Anarikamo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hyannaku.

Zachais is ranked 224,630th in the world and 1,138th in 10000 Islands for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 20.41 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
