The Imperium of Vesteysia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Auguste II with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, anti-smoking policies, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.98 billion Vesteysians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Erde. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Vesteysian economy, worth a remarkable 1,465 trillion Galactic Credits a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 294,234 Galactic Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,054,729 per year while the poor average 14,540, a ratio of 141 to 1.

Summer science camps are regularly raided by narcotics police, the construction of massive skyscrapers seems to be the result of Vesteysia's mid-life crisis, old spellbooks are only useful as door-stops or toilet roll substitute, and grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vesteysia's national animal is the Galaktischenverschlinger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Vesteysia is ranked 61,881st in the world and 2,613th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,292.46 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
