The Federal Republic of Vesuva is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Mangara of Corondor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.616 billion Vesuvans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Changeling. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Vesuvan economy, worth a remarkable 2,026 trillion Vesuvan dollars 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 160,592 Vesuvan dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government opponents tend to have their patents rejected immediately, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, ad-blocking has been nationalised, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vesuva's national animal is the Scorpion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vesuva is ranked 1,106th in the world and 43rd in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 4,784.72 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
