The Scientific Super Colliders of Vostrov is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by P M Kendrick Jovita Demetrius Andreas with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, soft-spoken computers, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.459 billion Vostrovs love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Site 17 of Large Hadron Super Collider. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Vostrov economy, worth a remarkable 2,142 trillion Universal and Reliable Valentian Credits 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 226,455 Universal and Reliable Valentian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, it is popularly believed that "cheese every day keeps disaster away", citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", and evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vostrov's national animal is the Efficient en Reliable Yet Cuddly Android, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism Amongst Many Other Religions.

Vostrov is ranked 244,221st in the world and 407th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -29.02 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
