LeaderSupreme Leader Auris Callaxius


The Principality of The Vanu Sovereign is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Auris Callaxius with an iron fist, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, keen interest in outer space, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.035 billion Vanui are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with International Aid and Spirituality not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Auraxis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.8%.

The thriving Sovereign economy, worth 457 trillion Vexes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 90,831 Vexes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 378,606 per year while the poor average 14,234, a ratio of 26.6 to 1.

Wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, organ donation is compulsory, napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations, and military instructors tire of being asked for another bedtime story by seven-year-old conscripts. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Vanu Sovereign's national animal is the Assassin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

The Vanu Sovereign is ranked 156,254th in the world and 3rd in United Nations of Earthlings for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -7.75 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
