The Federation of Zavea is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Langley with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, cheerful population of 18.944 billion Zaveans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oured. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Zavean economy, worth a remarkable 7,578 trillion Zavean Standard Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 400,049 Zavean Standard Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, the lactose-intolerant are force-fed cheese products with predictably gassy results, and Prime Minister Langley's new political program is often mockingly called 'Capitalism with a Bigtopian face'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zavea's national animal is the Angel Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zavea is ranked 154,519th in the world and 3,684th in the Rejected Realms for Most Pro-Market, scoring 24.89 on the Rand Index.
