The Empire of Vlast 5 is a very large, pleasant nation, remarkable for its burgeoning Black Widow population. The hard-working population of 176 million Vlast 5ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 13.8%.
The Vlast 5ian economy, worth 8.71 trillion Monies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Soda Sales. Average income is 49,483 Monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.
Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vlast 5's national animal is the Black Widow.
