The Federation of Vykrotia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Garrett Gaundelli with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.685 billion Vykrotians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Virtus. The average income tax rate is 88.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vykrotian economy, worth 999 trillion Vyekks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 149,496 Vyekks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Cremation is compulsory for the deceased, Vykrotians incessantly needle their doctors for relief, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, and government opponents tend to have their patents rejected immediately. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vykrotia's national animal is the Kironian eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Vykrotia is ranked 66,948th in the world and 2,056th in Balder for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 62.38 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
