The Hyperborean Empire of Vostag is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kaiser Thor Odinson with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, avowedly heterosexual populace, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 17.015 billion Hyperboreans 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 large, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Commoriom. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Hyperborean economy, worth a remarkable 4,025 trillion Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 236,569 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Mark charge on their phone bill, they say that Hyperboreans made a dessert and called it peace, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, and the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vostag's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Ceremonial Deism-Secularism.

Vostag is ranked 4,199th in the world and 3rd in Barbaria for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 15,313.14 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
