The National Republic of Greater Vvarden is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Archon with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.532 billion Vvardenians, 327 million of whom are zombies, enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vivec. The average income tax rate is 27.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Vvardenii economy, worth 492 trillion Bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 194,677 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens, The Archon has been known to make speeches in fishing waders, social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, and looting and pillaging are now considered vital intelligence-gathering activities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Greater Vvarden's national animal is the Honey Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Codex.

Greater Vvarden is ranked 1,587th in the world and 1st in Sovereignty Defense Pact for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 27,494.59 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
