The United Provinces of Vektes is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.167 billion Vektans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newport. The average income tax rate is 66.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Vektan economy, worth a remarkable 1,109 trillion Vektan Pounds a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 109,120 Vektan Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Heretic deviants are free to practice their deviance outside of Vektes, the nation's police officers are famously miserable-looking, the government is in utter turmoil following the recent abolishment of the tax code, and intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vektes's national animal is the Antiochian Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Protestant Christianity.

Vektes is ranked 120,727th in the world and 35th in Geopolity for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 40.95 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
