OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Realm of Vancata is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Philip with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.855 billion Vancatans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vancata City. The average income tax rate is 41%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and Vancata City is a police state during international summits. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vancata's national animal is the Sapphire Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the Pinto.

Vancata is ranked 126th in Yggdrasil and 48,409th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
