|Faith||a major religion|
The Mad scientist of Vashnis is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, lack of airports, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.55 billion Vashnisians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fask. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.3%.
The all-consuming Vashnisian economy, worth 467 trillion Credits a year, is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 84,266 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 353,721 per year while the poor average 13,048, a ratio of 27.1 to 1.
Every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, homosexuality is a crime punishable by death, shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, and crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vashnis's national animal is the Horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.
