The Insurrectionary Communes of Zaversko is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Communal Councils with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.09 billion Zaverskans 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Komuntravyaberg. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Zaverskan economy, worth 283 trillion no currencies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 91,782 no currencies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, they say that Zaverskans made a dessert and called it peace, only adults may purchase violent video games, and the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Zaversko's national animal is the Irbis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is do what you want.

Zaversko is ranked 5,972nd in the world and 89th in The Communist Bloc for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 57.39 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
