Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Vogega is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Alek Morningstar with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.442 billion Vogegans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Latipac Ytic. The average income tax rate is 67.6%.

The very strong Vogegan economy, worth a remarkable 1,145 trillion Makoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 177,767 Makoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The Foreign Ministry thinks an eye for an eye is a blindingly good idea, bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, and the government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vogega's national animal is the Sharkin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Imperia.

Vogega is ranked 11,980th in the world and 1st in The Vogegan Empire for Most Influential, scoring 2,352 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
