The Eco-Nationalist Vincaracy of Gladesville is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Vindalbal II with an even hand, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, frequent executions, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.661 billion Gladesmen have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vincaract Bay. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gladesvillagen economy, worth 205 trillion Ulrechian Sterlings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 123,924 Ulrechian Sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, a life spent suffering in silence is considered noble, the military struggles with recruitment, and only the wealthy can afford monorail fares. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gladesville's national animal is the Gladesvillager Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Gladesville is ranked 106,467th in the world and 42nd in Federation of Conservative Nations for Most Pro-Market, scoring 46 on the Rand Index.
