The Zzz of Vegaga is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by zzz with an iron fist, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, fear of technology, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.047 billion Vegagans 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of zzz. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Vegagan economy, worth 410 trillion zzzes a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 200,350 zzzes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 794,669 per year while the poor average 34,111, a ratio of 23.3 to 1.

Excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, armoured pyjamas are in fashion amongst the nation's nobility, sanitary products are sold in brown paper at hairdressers' salons, and the government spends billions to protect Vegaga from a disaster that is one in a million. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Vegaga's national animal is the zzz, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is zzz.

Vegaga is ranked 13,001st in the world and 8th in Latinoamerica Libre for Most Armed, with 6.53 Weapons Per Person.
