The Kingdom of Vespertia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Sonja with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.207 billion Vespertians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Navenis. The average income tax rate is 42.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Vespertian economy, worth 80.6 trillion sovereigns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 66,789 sovereigns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

There's a bright dawn ahead for Vespertia, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, and mystics are claiming that a simultaneous rise in scepticism and education budgets is correlation rather than causation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vespertia's national animal is the wyvern, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Vespertian paganism.

Vespertia is ranked 49,849th in the world and 150th in Wintreath for Most Developed, scoring 57.55 on the Human Development Index.
