The Autocratic Republic of Vexilia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Teethy Phoenix with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.029 billion Vexilians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenix. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Vexilian economy, worth a remarkable 3,574 trillion Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 356,396 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation is compulsory, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, and no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vexilia's national animal is the Orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Vexilia is ranked 227,154th in the world and 8,665th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -593.6 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
