The Federal Republic of Vesuva is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Akal Pakal with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.073 billion Vesuvans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Changeling. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Vesuvan economy, worth a remarkable 3,048 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 151,849 Vesuvan dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, the derisively named "Morlocks of Moria" futilely demand time in the sun, Vesuvan diplomacy is by the book, and actively encouraging climate change is helping reduce winter fuel costs. 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 294,908th in the world and 6,558th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.43 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
