The Kingdom of Vedastia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by řeauturikui I with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 11.953 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 3,448 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 288,506 Crowns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,258,766 per year while the poor average 41,784, a ratio of 30.1 to 1.

Prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals, apprentice builders get teased for wearing hard hats, corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients, and children of nonreligious parents are often barred from school festival events. 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 2,981st in the world and 12th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 13,768.37 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
