The Queendom of Vespergale is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Queen Asta Bonnet with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ritual sacrifices, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 8.428 billion Vespergalians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Natrim. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Vespergalian economy, worth 997 trillion Scalieses a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,315 Scalieses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The banshee wail foretells skies of death, basic multiplication is all you need to know to have a child, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, and children are often punished for the sins of the fathers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vespergale's national animal is the Serpantin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fontransi.

Vespergale is ranked 2,561st in the world and 16th in The Alliance of Dictators for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 8,690.53 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
