The Socialist Federal Republic of Vedoria is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Edgar Kleist with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 3.813 billion Vedorians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. The average income tax rate is 81.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vedorian economy, worth 675 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 177,260 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Vedoria's national animal is the Andean Condor, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Vedoria is ranked 126,566th in the world and 14th in The Cormorant Pact for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 495.56 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
