The United Socialist States of Vietalis is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 200 million Vietalisians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Vietalisian economy, worth 3.86 trillion Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing and Information Technology. Average income is 19,308 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, NationStates is now a popular brand of laxatives despite Max Barry's protests, and citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vietalis's national animal is the Vietalian Black Stork, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Vietalis is ranked 48,297th in the world and 257th in The Communist Bloc for Most Politically Free, scoring 70.89 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
