The Principality of Vesicatrus is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prince Sarı Gözləri with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 4.566 billion 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 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 97%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Tourism.

Strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, immigrants are required to salute the flag five times a day, public nudity is compulsory, and Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed. 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 106th in bonvanasmith and 119,609th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring -950 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
