The United Socialist States of Vasilism is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its zero percent divorce rate, strictly enforced bedtime, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.631 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 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vasilismian economy, worth 449 trillion Vasils a year, is quite specialized and dominated 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 123,698 Vasils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national security service are a bunch of crooks, tax avoidance is a serious affair, travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Vasilism. 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.

Vasilism is ranked 59,663rd in the world and 1,077th in the West Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 1.6 Bank.
