Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Federal Democratic Oligarchy of V E X is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Chairman with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.565 billion Vexians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, outspoken government is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tel Vos. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Vexian economy, worth a remarkable 2,945 trillion Zenis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 234,393 Zenis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, carpet bombing has decimated Brasilistan's landscape and population, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, and fur coats have become the latest fashion trend. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. V E X's national animal is the Panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

V E X is ranked 1st in The Benevolent Realm and 127,201st in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring -12 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
