The Dominion of V A N Q U A R I A is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 353 million Vanquarians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Auraxis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.4%.

The all-consuming V A N Q U A R I Aian economy, worth 29.2 trillion Berrieses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 82,650 Berrieses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 236,296 per year while the poor average 23,027, a ratio of 10.3 to 1.

The tinfoil-hat crowd also recommend tinfoil wallets, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. V A N Q U A R I A's national animal is the Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

V A N Q U A R I A is ranked 59,090th in the world and 25th in Greater Olympus for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 71.34 Workforce Participation Rate.
