The Cannibalicracy of Vespertilia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Belpheghorhoth Gacek with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 33.357 billion Vespertilians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Education is also considered important, while Law & Order and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravendark. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Vespertilian economy, worth an astonishing 12,544 trillion Gaceks a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 376,053 Gaceks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, and the government loves seeing the little people fight. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Vespertilia's national animal is the bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Vespertilia is ranked 204,839th in the world and 17th in Poland for Highest Average Tax Rates, with -0.34 Effective Tax Rate.
