The Imperial Glory of Vaktaria is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Rendower with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.29 billion Vaktarians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Reitland. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Vaktarian economy, worth a remarkable 6,410 trillion Disowns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 448,606 Disowns, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,473,585 per year while the poor average 15,176, a ratio of 228 to 1.

Economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, more citizens have access to Maxtopian Grass than clean drinking water, East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', and commemorative mugs remembering last year's Black Friday Crockery Riots are a best seller this year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Vaktaria's national animal is the Gryphon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Not Applicable.

Vaktaria is ranked 247,766th in the world and 50th in Azure Watester Federation for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 6.19 tourists per hour.
