The Machiavellian State of Gothic Vandelia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by John Kaiser with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.651 billion Gothic Vandelians 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Deep13. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Gothic Vandelian economy, worth a remarkable 3,653 trillion Rand a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is a breathtaking 549,341 Rand, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

City rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of high velocity delivery drones, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, weighted heels are added to military boots to ensure diminutive celebrities meet minimum requirements, and Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Gothic Vandelia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gothic Vandelia's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Norse.

Gothic Vandelia is ranked 37,100th in the world and 14th in The Wolf Clan for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,352.28 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
