The Federated Communes of Vestrik is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 826 million Vestrikians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vestrikian economy, worth 71.4 trillion Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 86,464 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prison visits increase substantially during election years, the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, and tourists on boat cruises can't figure out why they smell so fishy afterward. Crime is totally unknown. Vestrik's national animal is the Herring, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Vestrik is ranked 129,560th in the world and 426th in The Communist Bloc for Highest Economic Output, with 71.4 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
