The Federated Republic of Vastalon is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by High Steward Gabrael Aedones with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, public floggings, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 27.861 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 57.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vastalonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,197 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 114,760 Vas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Asking 'a penny for your thoughts?' draws law enforcement response, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, news headlines suggest that High Steward Gabrael Aedones has a sideline in guinea pig pimping, and the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots. 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 239,781st in the world and 199th in Yggdrasil for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring -4.47 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
