Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Anocratic Synocracy of V E X is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Chairman with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 15.697 billion Vexians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, although Education and Industry are also considered important, 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 3,779 trillion Zenis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 240,772 Zenis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the government has enacted freedom of information, taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Vexians. 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 2,263rd in the world and 1st in The Benevolent Realm for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 305.01 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
