The Right-Wing Utopia of Vortyd is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Paul Kruger with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, unlimited-speed roads, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 8.933 billion Vortydians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pretoria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Vortydian economy, worth a remarkable 1,442 trillion staters a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 161,493 staters, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 798,320 per year while the poor average 18,568, a ratio of 43.0 to 1.

Paul Kruger dines while Pretoria burns, the government thinks Vortydians can achieve social cohesion by drinking soda together, giant no-kill traps baited with Bapst Red Ribbon and vintage bicycles have been popping up in back alleys nationwide, and the recital of citations that follows any political speech can be longer than the speech itself. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Vortyd's national animal is the Lynx, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Reformed Christianity.

Vortyd is ranked 16,949th in the world and 2nd in The New Inquisition for Most Pro-Market, scoring 77.89 on the Rand Index.
