Population4.777 billion



The People's Republic of Vesmeau is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.777 billion Vesmeauans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Triasall. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Vesmeauan economy, worth 380 trillion farthings a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 79,644 farthings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's athletes must all cross the finish line together while holding hands, pulling weeds is seen as a threat to national security, the government has been criticized for giving away Vesmeau's territory to anyone who claims it, and people make a career out of medical voyeurism. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vesmeau's national animal is the seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Vesmeau is ranked 203,571st in the world and 288th in The Leftist Assembly for Rudest Citizens, with 25.73 Insults Per Minute.
