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 museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 18.127 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 dominated by the Department of Law & Order, although Education and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. 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 4,405 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 243,047 Zenis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is proud to report that ten percent of all tax revenue goes to funding suspected terrorist organizations, children must make a homemade spinach and ricotta rotolo by high school or be held back, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, and a new religious movement claims that people's souls are stored in phosphorous. 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 23,689th in the world and 1st in The Benevolent Realm for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 74.81 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
