The Free Land of Vastuk is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its superstitious fear of technology. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 5.993 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 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 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.

Wealthy students ride to school past mendicant dropouts, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, and teenagers stay out into the wee hours of the morning "stargazing". 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 6,447th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 169 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
