The Divided Archipelago of Oceanic Vakiadia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by I Nwerol and F Nwerol and V Cansyer with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The cynical, cheerful population of 25.989 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 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 2.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vakiadian economy, worth a remarkable 9,052 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 348,304 Selahunos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, school kids who pretend to drive imaginary cars get a social worker and a police observer assigned to them, the little guy plays a big role in Vakiadian politics, and twice-daily toilet inspection rotas for government buildings are archived for public appraisal. 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 43,254th in the world and 1st in Xiliki for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 5,116.53 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
