The Divided Archipelago of Oceanic Vakiadia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by I Nwerol and F Nwerol and V Cansyer with an iron fist, and remarkable for its daily referendums, unlimited-speed roads, and ubiquitous missile silos. The cynical, cheerful population of 23.433 billion Vakiadians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adiakav and Ankyandya and Illani. The average income tax rate is 2.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vakiadian economy, worth a remarkable 8,145 trillion Selahunos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 347,618 Selahunos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political hopefuls must announce their intentions decades in advance to accommodate extensive background checks, street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by, people who do not complete their community service are sentenced to more community service, and the well-to-do in Xiliki are never on time for important appointments. Crime is totally unknown. Oceanic Vakiadia's national animal is the Megalodon Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Expansionist Anti-Penguinism.

Oceanic Vakiadia is ranked 1,733rd in the world and 1st in Xiliki for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 27,993.2 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
