The Queen's State of Zovreign is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, zero percent divorce rate, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 16.195 billion Zovreignians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Zovreignian economy, worth 105 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 6,542 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have been outlawed, military spending recently hit a new high, the government is seen to favor Catholics, and TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zovreign's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zovreign is ranked 204,170th in the world and 1st in Gustavia for Most Politically Free, scoring zero on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
