The United Kingdom of Zachais is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Zach with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 15.929 billion Zachians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andirfell. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 87.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Zachian economy, worth a remarkable 1,384 trillion Xronas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 86,936 Xronas, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is regarded as a paragon of democracy, airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory, news headlines usually include p-values, and in the Beginning was the Word and the Word was "Pragmatism". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zachais's national animal is the Anarikamo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hyannaku.

Zachais is ranked 205,807th in the world and 2,076th in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -21.59 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
