|Leader||Prime Minister Roderick Lockwood|
The United Socialist States of Vessarlian is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Roderick Lockwood with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.338 billion Vessarlans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rocaster. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Vessarlan economy, worth 53.4 trillion Septims a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 39,889 Septims, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Carefully-staged grief is displayed by Prime Minister Roderick Lockwood after national disasters, police aim to defeat hatred with love with their "hugs-for-thugs" program, under love's heavy burden Prime Minister Roderick Lockwood sinks lower in the political right's esteem, and political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vessarlian's national animal is the Okapi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheist.
