The Gettin' Wild of Zukchiva is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Overlord Goose with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and public floggings. The compassionate population of 11.514 billion Zukchivans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Seveni. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zukchivan economy, worth a remarkable 1,402 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 121,773 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

More sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks, and moonshine has made a resurgence. Crime is totally unknown. Zukchiva's national animal is the Arctic-Goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Zukchiva is ranked 31,006th in the world and 793rd in The East Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 77.26 law-abiding acts per hour.
