The Terran-Empire of Vadia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Richard with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and public floggings. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 14.346 billion Vadians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Governmental Classified Bunker. The average income tax rate is 81.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Vadian economy, worth a remarkable 1,538 trillion Terran Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 107,230 Terran Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Vadia, churches across the land are hurriedly installing auto-tune for their choirs, and citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vadia's national animal is the Silver-fanged Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Vadia is ranked 150,564th in the world and 5,437th in Lazarus for Most Secular, with 12.41 Atheism Rate.
