The Principality of Vesicatrus is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Prince Sarı Gözləri with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.716 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 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.

The police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, the nation has an international reputation for compassion, a vast monorail network carries people all over the country, and several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation. 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 102nd in bonvanasmith and 96,546th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -4 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
