The People's Republic of Vostokian Union is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 214 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 Law & Order, Industry, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Vostokian Unionian economy, worth 22.1 trillion Vostoks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 103,336 Vostoks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 534,524 per year while the poor average 10,853, a ratio of 49.2 to 1.

Schoolchildren are arrested for possessing sidewalk chalk without a permit, skyscrapers get built in just days, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, and public shaming has become the favoured form of punishment. 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.

Vostokian Union is ranked 52,413th in the world and 244th in Europe for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3,272.14 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
