The Bluebonnet State of The United Vex Imperium is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Gaius II with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 9.851 billion Vex have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rochemar. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vexian economy, worth a remarkable 2,940 trillion Talens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 298,447 Talens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia, the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, and the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The United Vex Imperium's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Vishkism.

The United Vex Imperium is ranked 17,393rd in the world and 17th in The League for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 15.76 Bank.
