The Autocratic Republic of Vexilia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Teethy Phoenix with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, strictly enforced bedtime, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.816 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 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Vexilian economy, worth a remarkable 3,494 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 black market in Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. 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 355,982 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem", the government is rumored to hire body doubles whose full-time jobs are to cry at public events, all beauty contests have been banned, and foreign envoys that want to visit Vexilia now have to navigate real minefields in addition to the political ones. 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 124,576th in the world and 5,290th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,254.35 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
