The Republic of Vetalia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 26.57 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 Healthcare. 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 7,819 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 Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 294,315 Rubles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 937,603 per year while the poor average 70,284, a ratio of 13.3 to 1.

Soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, and the team in charge of creating a new writing system have spent months deciding whether or not to use serif or sans-serif characters. Crime is totally unknown. Vetalia's national animal is the Vetalian Gazelle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Vetalia is ranked 153,244th in the world and 22nd in Gholgoth for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -29.15 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
