The Free Land of Vastuk is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its ban on automobiles. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.252 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 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 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.

The government is attempting to impose a new national language on the public, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, anyone who so much as frowns is referred to a mental health unit, and the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy. Crime is relatively low, 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 536th in the world for Best Weather, with 590 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
