The Federated Communes of Vestrik is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 803 million Vestrikians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 73.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vestrikian economy, worth 69.4 trillion Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is 86,428 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hackers post hourly updates on international summits, prison visits increase substantially during election years, the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, and young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts. Crime is totally unknown. Vestrik's national animal is the Herring, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Vestrik is ranked 177,826th in the world and 323rd in The Communist Bloc for Fattest Citizens, with 9.11 Obesity Rate.
