The Exsteme englishløving nation of Vartugia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by a crazy leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, parental licensing program, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.588 billion Vartugians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mönkav. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93.1%.

The all-consuming Vartugian economy, worth a remarkable 1,102 trillion leids a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 128,383 leids, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 388,049 per year while the poor average 33,071, a ratio of 11.7 to 1.

A crazy leader's former secretary was last sighted on her new yacht, school plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, political activists are routinely executed, and concussed eagleball players cannot remember their lineup position. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vartugia's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is something.

Vartugia is ranked 167,727th in the world and 3rd in Storenda Kukwandara for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -14.59 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
