Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Principality of Vesicatrus is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Prince Sarı Gözləri with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 11.156 billion Vesicatrusas have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hakluyt. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Vesicatrusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,644 trillion saltas 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 led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 147,392 saltas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Untold millions of saltas are going into a new government-funded maternity leave scheme, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, replacement organs are grown in vats, and sections of the police receive paramilitary training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vesicatrus's national animal is the woodchuck, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Seicho-no-Ie.

Vesicatrus is ranked 163,544th in the world and 90th in bonvanasmith for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -11.14 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
