The Principality of Vesicatrus is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Prince Sarı Gözləri with an even hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.154 billion Vesicatrusians 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 97%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Tourism.

The nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security, military spending recently hit a new high, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth. 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 19th in bonvanasmith and 10,344th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 4 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
