The Republic of Vacoul is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Weiss with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 3.725 billion Vacoulians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 22.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Vacoulian economy, worth 269 trillion Liens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 72,398 Liens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, school uniforms are compulsory, both illness and poverty are seen as signs of low moral worth, and politicians are often seen drinking soft drinks at the end of every public address. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vacoul's national animal is the Meep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vacoul is ranked 55,750th in the world and 80th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Developed, scoring 63.56 on the Human Development Index.
