The Great Empire of Zuvon is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Lucien III with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.935 billion Zuvonians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zares. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.7%.

The powerhouse Zuvonian economy, worth 238 trillion Zuvonian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is 81,098 Zuvonian Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, Emperor Lucien III often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers, and it's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zuvon's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is New Christianity.

Zuvon is ranked 203,321st in the world and 38th in Xedas for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -7.75 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
