LeaderEmperor Auguste


The Empire of Vesteysia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Auguste with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, rampant corporate plagiarism, and suspicion of poets. 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terhai. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Vesteysian economy, worth a remarkable 1,671 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 320,058 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 953,051 per year while the poor average 84,216, a ratio of 11.3 to 1.

Swarms of present-laden delivery drones blot out the sun before major holidays, mostly women are seen and not heard, college athletes are arrested for selling lemonade, and dealers go from pushing drugs to pushing up daisies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 106,442nd in the world and 4,548th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,127.9 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
