The Federal Republic of Vestartia is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its triple-decker prams, keen interest in outer space, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed population of 412 million Vestartians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vestrialia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Vestartian economy, worth 45.7 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 110,902 Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 422,354 per year while the poor average 20,169, a ratio of 20.9 to 1.

East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, and consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vestartia's national animal is the Dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Vestartia is ranked 11,637th in the world and 130th in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 6,045.06 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
