LeaderEmperor Auguste


The Empire of Vesteysia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Auguste with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, public floggings, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.211 billion Vesteysians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terhai. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Vesteysian economy, worth a remarkable 1,652 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 317,178 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,031,728 per year while the poor average 73,464, a ratio of 14.0 to 1.

Crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, city rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of high velocity delivery drones, Vesteysians incessantly needle their doctors for relief, and groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vesteysia's national animal is the Galaktischenverschlinger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Jormunganity.

Vesteysia is ranked 3,448th in the world and 138th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 62.99 Whatever.
