The Confederacy of Zyvetskistaahn is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Council of Executors with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.795 billion Zyvetens love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zyveta. The average income tax rate is 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Zyveten economy, worth 745 trillion Zyvetenmarks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,260 Zyvetenmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, private business has started paving paradises and putting up parking lots, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zyvetskistaahn's national animal is the Liffen forest rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zyveten Orthodoxy.

Zyvetskistaahn is ranked 134,843rd in the world and 6,653rd in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -7.63 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
