The Autocratic Republic of Vexilia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Teethy Phoenix with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, infamous sell-swords, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.765 billion Vexilians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenix. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Vexilian economy, worth a remarkable 3,475 trillion Pounds 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. 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 an amazing 355,880 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, Renaissance frescos are being chiselled off public walls, the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vexilia's national animal is the Orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Vexilia is ranked 4,393rd in the world and 180th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 6,873.5 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
