Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Principality of Vesicatrus is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Prince Sarı Gözləri with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, public floggings, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 7.425 billion Vesicatrusas are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hakluyt. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Vesicatrusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,017 trillion saltas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 136,993 saltas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, the newspaper industry is subsidised by the government in order to keep it afloat, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, and government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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, and its national religion is Seicho-no-Ie.

Vesicatrus is ranked 49th in bonvanasmith and 6,751st in the world for Best Weather, with 83 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
