The Kingdom of Vedastia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by řeauturikui I with an even hand, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 14.359 billion Vedastians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hoipton. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Vedastian economy, worth a remarkable 4,181 trillion Crowns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 291,234 Crowns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,553,714 per year while the poor average 28,688, a ratio of 54.2 to 1.

Social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, small shoes often wash up on the beach, nephews and nieces of the monarch resort to begging from relatives in palace halls, and some people will do literally anything to be in the spotlight. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Vedastia's national animal is the bee, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Vedastia is ranked 1,049th in the world and 7th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 1.55 million Standard Monetary Units.
