The Revolutionary Republic of Free Van Chet is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Archon Horatio Manzanares with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 2.266 billion Van Chetians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vanquall. The average income tax rate is 79.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Van Chetian economy, worth 223 trillion Van Chetian Pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is 98,437 Van Chetian Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, and country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Free Van Chet's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Free Van Chet is ranked 121,031st in the world and 58th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Armed, with 0.32 Weapons Per Person.
