The Rogue Nation of Vodkaisgud is a large, genial nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 62 million Vodkaisgudians 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 enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 73.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Vodkaisgudian economy, worth 1.50 trillion Vodkas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 24,250 Vodkas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, ratings for sitcom reruns are often much higher than election debates, the colors pink and purple are banned from military unit insignia, and laughter while watching foreign diplomats disrobe tends to make diplomatic talks counterproductive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vodkaisgud's national animal is the Druggo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Vodkaisgud is ranked 24,470th in the world and 963rd in the South Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 76.04 Workforce Participation Rate.
