The Republic of Vukastan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Jorji Kruzhiven with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, ubiquitous missile silos, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.16 billion Vukastanis enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lobotsk. The average income tax rate is 65.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vukastani economy, worth 402 trillion Tameks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 127,515 Tameks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tax rises are attributed to divine will, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, Vukastani police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, and innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Vukastan's national animal is the Bull, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is None.

Vukastan is ranked 138,309th in the world and 2nd in Caucasus Region for Most Pro-Market, scoring -61 on the Rand Index.
