Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederacy of Zyvetskistaahn is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Council of Executors with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.314 billion Zyvetens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Zyveten economy, worth 633 trillion Zyvetenmarks a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,021 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 24,268th in the world and 1,216th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 70.36 on the Human Development Index.
