The Republic of Vacoul is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Weiss with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 3.688 billion Vacoulians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 22.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Vacoulian economy, worth 267 trillion Liens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 72,397 Liens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, school uniforms are compulsory, both illness and poverty are seen as signs of low moral worth, and politicians are often seen drinking soft drinks at the end of every public address. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vacoul's national animal is the Meep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vacoul is ranked 25,525th in the world and 61st in The Hole To Hide In for Most Beautiful Environments, with 906.88 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
