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 notable for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 7.234 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 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Vesicatrusian economy, worth 981 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 135,620 saltas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Hakluyt Times is sold out, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging, and crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing. 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 9th in bonvanasmith and 3,119th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 22 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
