The Free Land of Vastuk is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its superstitious fear of technology. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.425 billion Vastukians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Law & Order and Social Equality are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vastuk City. The average income tax rate is 93%, and even higher for the wealthy. 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.

Criminals are put to death while cuddling their favourite teddy bear, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, the government is cutting back on the number of political prisoners executed each year, and flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys. Crime is relatively low, 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 5,113th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 763.5 Net Tourists per hour.
