The Principality of Vesicatrus is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prince Sarı Gözləri with an even hand, and renowned for its strong anti-business policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.389 billion Vesicatrusians 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.

Reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors, a government program is underway to revitalize Vesicatrus's beaches, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Vesicatrus after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. 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 10th in bonvanasmith and 5,173rd in the world for Safest, scoring 510.6 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
