The Free Land of Vastuk is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.668 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 secondary priorities. 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 are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors, children are sent to either religious or secular schools, and parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list. 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 539th in the world for Best Weather, with 613 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
