Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Land of Vastuk is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 11.268 billion Vastukians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The powerhouse Vastukian economy, worth a remarkable 1,161 trillion Tiny Eagles a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry. Average income is an impressive 103,074 Tiny Eagles, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

All tariffs have been abolished, retired racing Snails are served truffles for breakfast, artists are pillars of society, and suburban families are finding themselves increasingly short on food as they waste precious water on their lawns. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vastuk's national animal is the Snail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vastuk is ranked 174,882nd in the world and 1st in Brasil Potencia for Most Avoided, scoring 0.38 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
