LeaderEmperor Auguste


The Empire of Vesteysia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Auguste with an iron fist, and notable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.222 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terhai. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 94.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Vesteysian economy, worth a remarkable 1,667 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 319,406 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,033,949 per year while the poor average 74,510, a ratio of 13.9 to 1.

Parents often ask to see a credit report before lending money to their own children, Vesteysia isn't what it used to be, barges of dissidents are being "reeducated through water therapy" in the South Galaktischenverschlinger Sea, and holidaymakers sleep curled up on the floor as hotel beds are replaced with oversized bookcases. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 102,549th in the world and 4,389th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,280.66 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
