The Holy Empire of Zelveria is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 309 million Zelverians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 41.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Zelverian economy, worth 15.1 trillion bitcoins a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 48,848 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Streaming video is considered to be a myth by most citizens, truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, all guns must be registered, and short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zelveria's national animal is the jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zelveria is ranked 189,930th in the world and 8,379th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -7.62 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
