The Federated Republic of Vastalon is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by High Steward Gabrael Aedones with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 25.101 billion Vastalonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vastalon City. The average income tax rate is 47.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vastalonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,806 trillion Vas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 111,796 Vas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, new legislators take a week-long class entitled "Keeping Your Job: How to Avoid Offending High Steward Gabrael Aedones", a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, and pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits. Crime is totally unknown. Vastalon's national animal is the Crimson Vastahawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Vastalon is ranked 211,257th in the world and 181st in Yggdrasil for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -7.16 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
