The Federal Republic of Vesuva is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mangara of Corondor with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.145 billion Vesuvans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Changeling. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Vesuvan economy, worth a remarkable 1,922 trillion Vesuvan dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 158,268 Vesuvan dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vesuva's national animal is the Scorpion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vesuva is ranked 3,007th in the world and 171st in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 96.24 on the Human Development Index.
