The Radical Matriarchy of Zevistan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Goddess Kate with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and enslaved workforce. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.039 billion Zevistanians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Labiat. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.2%.

The Zevistanian economy, worth 265 trillion Selenes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, 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 22,048 Selenes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 64,695 per year while the poor average 5,923, a ratio of 10.9 to 1.

Kids are told they can be whoever they want to be when they grow up, Maxtopian slaves are routinely sold as an optional extra for household appliances, the national government has been dissolved by revolutionary insurgents, and debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. 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 12,044th in the world and 665th in Lazarus for Largest Black Market, with 71.1 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
