The Theory of Happiness of Vrolondia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Arano Iandra with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 12.178 billion Geldi enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ismair. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Geldi economy, worth 998 trillion Elysiums a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. Average income is 81,989 Elysiums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, residents firmly believe there is no spoon (Vrolondia has found 4 easter eggs), and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. Crime is totally unknown. Vrolondia's national animal is the Haunted Lamp, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Vrolondian Pantheon.

Vrolondia is ranked 112th in Yggdrasil and 18,652nd in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 13 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
