The Confederacy of Zyvetskistaahn is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Council of Executors with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.455 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 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Zyveten economy, worth 839 trillion Zyvetenmarks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,070 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 the all-pervasive 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 74,037th in the world and 3,944th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 19.57 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
