The Republic of Western Vapia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Matteo Salsano with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 6.535 billion Vapians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rovigia. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Vapian economy, worth a remarkable 2,428 trillion Lire a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 371,614 Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Western Vapia has taken the radical step of electing its future leaders, reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news, Western Vapia Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', and the new coalition government is so large nobody knows where it begins. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Western Vapia's national animal is the Grey Alpine Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Vapian Trinitism.

Western Vapia is ranked 213,092nd in the world and 9,633rd in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -10 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
