The Free Land of Vastuk is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, surprisingly youthful workforce, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 6.391 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.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vastuk City. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Vastukian economy, worth 671 trillion Tiny Eagles a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry. Average income is an impressive 105,031 Tiny Eagles, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

Naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, Vastuk's educational system is the envy of many and regarded as a pinnacle of academic achievement, residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, and several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation. 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, and its national religion is a major religion.

Vastuk is ranked 1st in Brasil Potencia and 3,460th in the world for Most Devout, scoring 103 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
