The Free Land of Vastuk is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and frequent executions. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 12.907 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 1,330 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.

Vastuk's national animal is the Snail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vastuk is ranked 2,350th in the world and 1st in Brasil Potencia for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 86.99 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
