The Armed Republic of Vascoviy is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Amir al-Sabbat with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.221 billion Vascovs are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Law & Order, Defense, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Vascoviyan economy, worth 211 trillion Vascov Dinars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 65,708 Vascov Dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, police officers find government bureaucracy more terrifying than most serial killers, the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, and the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vascoviy's national animal is the Scorpion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheist.

Vascoviy is ranked 116,701st in the world and 234th in The Communist Bloc for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -1.48 on the Hayek Index.
