The Principality of Vesicatrus is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prince Sarı Gözləri with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 6.303 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 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Vesicatrusian economy, worth 849 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 134,700 saltas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, all footpaths have tollbooths, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. 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 12th in bonvanasmith and 5,696th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 82 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
