The Free Land of Vastuk is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 3.239 billion, 3.208 billion of whom are zombies, Vastukians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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 96%. 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', child adoption by homosexual couples has been outlawed, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, and prosecutors routinely call transplant doctors as 'expert witnesses' in burglary cases. 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 114,213th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -24 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Vastuk is currently considering its options.
