The Federal Republic of Vesuva is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kasmina of Strixhaven with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, pith helmet sales, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.979 billion Vesuvans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Changeling. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Vesuvan economy, worth a remarkable 2,305 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 164,947 Vesuvan dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés, in musicals everybody's a little bit racist, busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, and homophobia is off the menu. 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 19,196th in the world and 427th in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 14.0 billion Capita.
