The Radical Matriarchy of Zevistan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Goddess Kate with an iron fist, and notable for its lack of airports, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.484 billion Zevistanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Labiat. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Zevistanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,763 trillion Selenes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 240,602 Selenes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

There's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, the media have begun calling the government treasury "Goddess Kate's stash", theatre may or may not be changing for the better but it is being changed for good, and hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zevistan's national animal is the Mermaid, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Female Supremacy.

Zevistan is ranked 230,741st in the world and 7,412th in Lazarus for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -49.5 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
