Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Principality of Vesicatrus is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prince Sarı Gözləri with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 7.607 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 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Vesicatrusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,055 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 138,708 saltas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, Vesicatrus successfully hosted the bonvanasmith Olympics, and high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate. 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 118th in bonvanasmith and 123,728th in the world for Happiest Citizens, scoring 8 on the Relative Cheerfulness Rating.
