The Federal Republic of Vaxn is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Lev Sayge-Lavin with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.499 billion Vaxnis 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 large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sterkinsk. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Vaxn economy, worth 537 trillion zoltshas 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 led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 97,802 zoltshas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, government officials go door-to-door educating about the dangers of pseudoscience, and radio stations offer prizes to callers who can guess this month's most endangered species. Crime is totally unknown. Vaxn's national animal is the red eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Vaxn is ranked 173,593rd in the world and 141st in The Western Isles for Most Stationary, with 14.71143502912 Days.
