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 renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 6.988 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 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Vesicatrusian economy, worth 947 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 significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 135,587 saltas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Hakluyt Times is sold out. 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 101st in bonvanasmith and 143,068th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -26 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
