The United Socialist States of Vasilism is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.329 billion Vasilismians 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, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Vasilismian economy, worth 178 trillion Vasils a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 134,176 Vasils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", infantry are nicknamed "mushrooms" because they get fed crap and are left in the dark, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, and a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vasilism's national animal is the Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vasilism is ranked 22,273rd in the world and 847th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 5,897.83 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
