The United Kingdom of Zachais is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Zach with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 22.198 billion Zachians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andirfell. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zachian economy, worth a remarkable 2,042 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 92,028 Xronas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Zach's perky ego is the talk of the town, citizens no longer take selfies with their dead relatives at funerals, the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', and truck drivers turn their engines off and coast whenever they're going downhill. 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 3,154th in the world and 60th in 10000 Islands for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 32 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
