The Socialist Republic of Vandensia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Comrade Premier with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.064 billion Vandensians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slava. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Vandensian economy, worth 290 trillion eris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 140,680 eris, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a bright dawn ahead for Vandensia, you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and getting a blood transfusion from a Vandensian entitles a foreigner to citizenship. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Vandensia's national animal is the wolfdog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vandensia is ranked 3,734th in the world and 77th in The Communist Bloc for Most Developed, scoring 95.5 on the Human Development Index.
