The Sith Master King of Doom of Vader Knows Best 14 is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.54 billion Vader Knows Best 14ians 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, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Law & Order, although Industry and Defense are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.8%.

The thriving Vader Knows Best 14ian economy, worth 321 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is 33,649 Imperial Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 97,451 per year while the poor average 9,207, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

Crime is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Vader Knows Best 14's national animal is the Cheshire Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vader Knows Best 14 is ranked 253,092nd in the world and 136th in Middle Earth for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -12.65 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
