The People's Republic of Vostokian Union is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its soft-spoken computers, vat-grown people, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 492 million Vostokians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vaktovia. The average income tax rate is 54.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vostokian Unionian economy, worth 65.6 trillion Vostoks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 133,286 Vostoks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The GPS-tracked jogging routes of military personnel are a possible security risk, local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, Leader claims tax rises are the result of 'curses', and statistics show that terrorists often come from broken families. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vostokian Union's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vostokian Union is ranked 365th in the world and 4th in Europe for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 2,231.54 Bank.
