The Confederacy of Zyvetskistaahn is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Council of Executors with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 25.4 billion Zyvetens enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zyveta. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zyveten economy, worth a remarkable 2,098 trillion Zyvetenmarks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,621 Zyvetenmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, everyone wants to be on the guest list for diplomatic parties, ample hospital parking is half-filled by the luxury cars of hospital managers, and the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene. 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 4,714th in the world and 266th in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with 339 meters of sunlight.
