The Scientific Super Colliders of Vostrov is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by P M Kendrick Jovita Demetrius Andreas with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.213 billion Vostrovs love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vostrov's national animal is the Efficient en Reliable Yet Cuddly Android, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism Amongst Many Other Religions.
