The Consortium of Vesteus is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, state-planned economy, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 677 million Vesteusians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 17.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Vesteusian economy, worth 47.5 trillion Merit's a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is 70,101 Merit's, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, a new "thought police" branch is being developed, and the Messiah (formerly known as Brian) is a mayoral candidate. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vesteus's national animal is the fox.

Vesteus is ranked 99,788th in the world and 8th in Solar Alliance for Best Weather, with 101 Meters Of Sunlight.
