The Confederacy of Vasti is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Benito Pozente with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 979 million Vastians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Albarka. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.5%.

The powerhouse Vastian economy, worth 84.6 trillion pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Average income is 86,376 pesos, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Benito Pozente has just been declared ruler of Vasti in an international press conference, street preachers sell salvation with a side order of shame on every corner, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, and town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Vasti's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vasti is ranked 107,953rd in the world and 1st in The Coalition of Eternity for Largest Governments, scoring 12.77 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
