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 5.374 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 35%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

The people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, skateparks can be found in every city, multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. 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 112th in Yggdrasil and 18,935th in the world for Best Weather, with 48 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
