Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Anocratic Synocracy of V E X is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Chairman with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 15.267 billion Vexians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 are ignored. 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 3,672 trillion Zenis a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 240,559 Zenis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The armed forces are vetting the political loyalties of its remaining officers, bars are packed at all hours, dining out often involves Panthers on the plate no matter what you order, and only fully-fledged members of MENSA are allowed to vote. 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 21,217th in the world and 1st in The Benevolent Realm for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 6,202.36 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
