The United Socialist States of Vyshesibir is a small, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 26 million Vyshesibiryaki are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The struggling Vyshesibiryak economy, worth 647 billion rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 24,914 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, and the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vyshesibir's national animal is the brown bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vyshesibir is ranked 86,507th in the world and 49th in The Democratika for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 1,074.14 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
