The United Socialist States of Vechirinkagrad is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Jarvo Skavinski with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.481 billion Vechirinkagradians 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sovasi. The average income tax rate is 84.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Vechirinkagradian economy, worth 118 trillion Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is 80,050 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion, billions of Rubles are being blown on orbital weapons development, major internet servers have acquired citizenship, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vechirinkagrad's national animal is the pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
