The Free Land of Vastuk is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.293 billion 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, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with 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.

Drug-related crimes carry the death penalty, Vastuk has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, criminals are put to death while cuddling their favourite teddy bear, and the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth. Crime is well under control, 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 104,740th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -15 on the Hayek Index.
