The Free Land of Vastuk is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 5.789 billion Vastukians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vastuk City. The average income tax rate is 95%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Citizens select which government department gets their income tax Tiny Eagles each year, military spending is on the increase, only vaccinated citizens may have free healthcare, and the government tries to improve relations with hostile countries by sending gift baskets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vastuk's national animal is the Snail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Tiny Eagle.

Vastuk is ranked 1st in Brasil Potencia and 16,560th in the world for Largest Populations, with 5,789 Capita (millions).
