The Federal Republic of Vesuva is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Xander Maestros with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.21 billion Vesuvans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Changeling. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Vesuvan economy, worth a remarkable 2,844 trillion Vesuvan dollars 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 175,460 Vesuvan dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A determined opposition debates the relative benefits of Arial and Times New Roman for days on end, the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Vesuva, visitors to Self-Sufficiency National Park who ask for trail maps are handed a pen and a blank sheet of paper, and Xander Maestros is strangely popular with male politicians' wives. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vesuva's national animal is the Scorpion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vesuva is ranked 153,451st in the world and 7,911th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 330.67 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
