LeaderEmperor Auguste


The Empire of Vesteysia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Auguste with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, vat-grown people, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.605 billion Vesteysians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terhai. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Vesteysian economy, worth a remarkable 2,002 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 357,305 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,575,836 per year while the poor average 15,880, a ratio of 162 to 1.

Quiet professionalism has returned to the nation's armed forces, the government loves seeing the little people fight, mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, and labour strikes are routinely squashed by police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 Jormunganity.

Vesteysia is ranked 3,390th in the world and 212th in The North Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 47,271.54 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
