The Republic of Vistulange is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Tallinn Ström with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, zero percent divorce rate, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 20.052 billion Vistulangeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravnensby. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Vistulangean economy, worth a remarkable 4,337 trillion Vistulangean kroner a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 216,337 Vistulangean kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is something rotten in the state of Vistulange, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem, and a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vistulange's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Lutheran Christianity.

Vistulange is ranked 245,833rd in the world and 99th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2.23 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
