The Dictatorship of Zemedievai is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 496 million Zemedievans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sventykla. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.9%.

The very strong Zemedievan economy, worth 35.0 trillion saskas a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 70,501 saskas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 232,057 per year while the poor average 16,047, a ratio of 14.5 to 1.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, onions have been banned due to their tendency to cause eye irritation, political gridlock ensues as even the most innocuous legislation is vetoed by the Supreme Court for potential civil rights violations, and Zemedievai has designated Sventykla as its capital city. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Zemedievai's national animal is the polar bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Zemedievai is ranked 63,180th in the world and 867th in The East Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 232,057 Standard Monetary Units.
