Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Anocratic Synocracy of V E X is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Chairman with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 17.06 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, although Education and Industry are also considered important, 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 4,159 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 243,787 Zenis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All government communication requires the imprimatur of the Truth Police, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, and the morbidly obese often sell stock options on their own corpses. 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 94,428th in the world and 1st in The Benevolent Realm for Most Extreme, scoring 14.57 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
