The Realm of Vancata is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Philip with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.042 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 Healthcare are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vancata City. The average income tax rate is 33%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Prisoners work-share to cut down rising costs of keeping them in jail, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, and the nation's train stations are widely considered to be the ugliest in Yggdrasil. 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 19th in Yggdrasil and 2,247th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 45 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
