The Empire of Vektes is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, ubiquitous missile silos, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.197 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 Karkand. The average income tax rate is 67.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Vektan economy, worth a remarkable 1,314 trillion Imperial Kabāls a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,731 Imperial Kabāls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

You need a signed affidavit from a registered psychiatrist to claim that you have crazy low prices, literally voiceless people are unable to protest when food and water are denied to them, teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, and blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love. 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 Vektan Grizzly Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is TBD.

Vektes is ranked 56,631st in the world and 17th in Geopolity for Nudest, with 175.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
