The Commonwealth of Vauquelin is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and smutty television. The compassionate population of 2.622 billion Vauquelians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Vauquelian economy, worth 98.2 trillion livres a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving. Average income is 37,457 livres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, Vauquelin's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, and a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vauquelin's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
