The Democratic Republic of Vzhozdnoyevsk is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 419 million Vzhozdnoyevskians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Vzhozdnoyevskian economy, worth 7.57 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, Soda Sales, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 18,063 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Escargots have lost their charm ever since they started to be called 'cooked land snails', cancer rates amongst the richest in society are inexplicably on the rise, Leader claims to be the epitome of family values, and Leader's family members carry literal get-out-of-jail-free cards. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vzhozdnoyevsk's national animal is the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Vzhozdnoyevsk is ranked 82,986th in the world and 1st in the Vzhozdnoyevskian Commonwealth for Most Extreme, scoring 25.46 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
