The Realm of Vancata is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Philip with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.571 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 38%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

The government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, notable individuals are granted land and titles, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. 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 99th in Yggdrasil and 57,097th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -6 on the Hayek Index.
