The Empire of Zveztown is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 809 million Zveztownians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.8%.

The strong Zveztownian economy, worth 47.7 trillion Rubllars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 58,960 Rubllars, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", major internet servers have acquired citizenship, and the government is outsourcing itself. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Zveztown's national animal is the Striped Rock Fish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Zveztown is ranked 40,274th in the world and 8th in Katzen for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,202.12 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
