The Autocratic Republic of Vexilia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by President Teethy Phoenix with an iron fist, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.045 billion Vexilians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phoenix. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Vexilian economy, worth a remarkable 1,654 trillion Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 273,670 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Rupert Bear is considered to be the most risqué TV programme in Vexilia, one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vexilia's national animal is the Orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Vexilia is ranked 144,101st in the world and 7,136th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 38.92 Years.
