The Principality of Vesicatrus is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Prince Sarı Gözləri with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.061 billion Vesicatrusas are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hakluyt. The average income tax rate is 98%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Tourism.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, euthanasia is illegal, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vesicatrus's national animal is the woodchuck, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Seicho-no-Ie, and its currency is the salta.

Vesicatrus is ranked 12th in bonvanasmith and 5,262nd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 14 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
