Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Anocratic Synocracy of V E X is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Chairman with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 16.511 billion Vexians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with Education and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tel Vos. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Vexian economy, worth a remarkable 4,024 trillion Zenis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 243,750 Zenis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam", excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, and police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. V E X's national animal is the Panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

V E X is ranked 174,442nd in the world and 1st in The Benevolent Realm for Most Devout, with 4.34 Prayers Per Hour.
