The Sublime Confoederatio of Znatsnaz is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Baron-King Gionata Giackovseen XIII with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 17.119 billion Znalotians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adenas. The average income tax rate is 4.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Znalote economy, worth a remarkable 3,659 trillion Ternish Franks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 213,781 Ternish Franks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses, there's never a spare chair in the retirement home, young schoolchildren pledge allegiance to One Nation Under Bum Indivisible By Poo, and vacationing Znalotians expect to be treated as royalty. Crime is totally unknown. Znatsnaz's national animal is the Alpine Ibex, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is East Orthodox Creed.

Znatsnaz is ranked 3,177th in the world and 12th in Novo Brasil for Most Developed, scoring 94.76 on the Human Development Index.
