The United Socialist States of Vasilism is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, strictly enforced bedtime, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.013 billion Vasilismians 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Vasilismian economy, worth 368 trillion Vasils a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 122,208 Vasils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Class action lawsuits have gone up in smoke thanks to government interference, the nation has gained millions of new citizens overnight, corporate lobbying has been outlawed, and every microwave and toaster is being disassembled and probed by inspectors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vasilism's national animal is the Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
