The Dictatorship of Imperial Vascorium is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its enslaved workforce, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 487 million Vascorians 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vascorium City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.5%.

The powerhouse Vascorian economy, worth 55.9 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 114,847 marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 592,542 per year while the poor average 12,125, a ratio of 48.9 to 1.

Looting and pillaging are now considered vital intelligence-gathering activities, women earn less than half the salary of men if they can even find a job, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, and stylish juvenile delinquents are highly overrepresented in fatal motorcycle accidents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Imperial Vascorium's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Imperial Vascorium is ranked 254,742nd in the world and 9th in Roria for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -14.49 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
