The Sheep shoop of Vest Oldabre is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kyte Wardin with an iron fist, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, compulsory vegetarianism, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.35 billion mistakes are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Exalos. The average income tax rate is 70.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Vest Oldabrean economy, worth a remarkable 4,110 trillion Pebbleses a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 397,106 Pebbleses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

The police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence, the government is dead set on letting people rest in peace, ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter Vest Oldabrean pirates, and the backs of 'No Trespassing' signs were made for you and me. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Vest Oldabre's national animal is the Wood Jester, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is bread.

Vest Oldabre is ranked 289th in the world and 2nd in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 32,333.86 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
