The Free Land of Vastuk is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.588 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 concentrates mainly on Education, although Law & Order and Social Equality are on the agenda. 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.

Snails deemed dangerous to the public are shot and hanged by the town hall as a warning to others, female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, Vastuk's Medieval Faire is renowned as one of the best in the region, and Vastuk's famous countrysides are shrouded by wind farms. 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 72,434th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 65 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
