The Empire of Vektes is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, hatred of cheese, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.58 billion Vektans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karkand. The average income tax rate is 73.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vektan economy, worth a remarkable 1,378 trillion Imperial Kabāls a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 101,539 Imperial Kabāls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prisoners pray grey skies are gonna clear up, the government tries not to listen to the people unless it absolutely has to, it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, and pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vektes's national animal is the Vektan Grizzly Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is TBD.

Vektes is ranked 186,531st in the world and 79th in Geopolity for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.78 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
