The Realm of Vancata is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Philip with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.264 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 is mainly concerned with Education, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vancata City. The average income tax rate is 30%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

New safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Vancata to be bombproof, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Vancata, and all tariffs have been abolished. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Pinto.

Vancata is ranked 68th in Yggdrasil and 12,785th in the world for Safest, scoring 281.6 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
