The Collectivist Republic of The United Vex Imperium is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Provisional DeFacto PM Steven Helmshed with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 2.657 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 prioritizes Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rosenhart. The average income tax rate is 54.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vex economy, worth 419 trillion Vex Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 158,006 Vex Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Almost all of The United Vex Imperium's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, and aspiring pilots must be personally vetted by the Minister of Transportation before receiving their license. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The United Vex Imperium's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The United Vex Imperium is ranked 125,988th in the world and 356th in The Western Isles for Most Influential, scoring 18 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
