The United Kingdom of Zachais is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Zach with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 17.58 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 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zachian economy, worth a remarkable 1,495 trillion Xronas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 85,055 Xronas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's rumored that Marche Noire knows what the nation's generals eat for breakfast, Zach's office is running a trade deficit of midnight oil, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Andirfell to enjoy their national art, and interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBZ Governor goes house hunting. 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 118,718th in the world and 696th in 10000 Islands for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 103,773 Standard Monetary Units.
