The Borderlands of V217a is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Most Glorious Visionary with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 13.591 billion V217ovians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dublin. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient V217an economy, worth a remarkable 2,293 trillion Quid a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 168,760 Quid, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

V217a has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, edutainment video games are taking V217a's students to the next level, self-driving cars are unpopular due to suspicion that they murder their passengers, and rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. V217a's national animal is the Satsuma, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a collection of silly beliefs.

V217a is ranked 88,975th in the world and 4,010th in Osiris for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,633.32 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
