The Indomitable Dominion of Vaetoria is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Sestres with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.001 billion Vaetorians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Enthorr. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Vaetorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,155 trillion Creds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 115,562 Creds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Enthorr as a backdrop, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", newspapers are running a front-page picture of Emperor Sestres holding a crowbar and standing over a bloodied stockbroker, and journalists often nap through tedious police press briefings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vaetoria's national animal is the Snow Leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Vaetoria is ranked 18,038th in the world and 716th in Balder for Most Authoritarian, with 2,622.44 milliStalins.
