The Republic of Vetalia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 29.534 billion Vetalians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vetalia City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Vetalian economy, worth a remarkable 8,827 trillion Rubles a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 298,886 Rubles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 970,657 per year while the poor average 69,393, a ratio of 14.0 to 1.

The banshee wail foretells skies of death, foreign spirits are hard to find due to an abundance of "Cletus and Jim Bob's Homemade Vetalian Moonshine", celebrity wrestlers thumb their nose at due process, and nine-year-olds' chat logs are scoured for evidence of radicalization. Crime is totally unknown. Vetalia's national animal is the Barn Swallow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Vetalia is ranked 67,148th in the world and 25th in Gholgoth for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 1.36 Bank.
