The People's Republic of Vostokian Union is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 486 million Vostokians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, 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 Vaktovia. The average income tax rate is 53.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Vostokian Unionian economy, worth 64.6 trillion Vostoks 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 a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Retail. 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 impressive 132,843 Vostoks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
The nation leads Europe for unlikely accidents and truffle consumption, international tensions are high as Vostokian Union threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, fitness to teach sport is proven by urinating the furthest up a wall, and fat-shaming is now public policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vostokian Union's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
