The Global Stock Market Index of Vesica is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Alexander Woods with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, avant-garde cinema, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 19.056 billion Vesicans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of One Financal Place. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Vesican economy, worth an astonishing 10,308 trillion GSMI Shares a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is a breathtaking 540,962 GSMI Shares, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,688,510 per year while the poor average 133,072, a ratio of 12.7 to 1.

It is popularly believed that "cheese every day keeps disaster away", the monarch frequently needs protecting from misfiring protection, most Vesicans would sell their own grandmother, and former state leaders include a TV comic and a cowboy actor. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Vesica's national animal is the unpaid intern, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Church of Westwind.

Vesica is ranked 580th in the world and 2nd in Equilism for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 29,791.34 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
