The Protectorate of Vagaborn is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 587 million Vagabornians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 13.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Vagabornian economy, worth 42.3 trillion stoens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 72,120 stoens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Underage drinkers are dragged through the streets and put in the stocks, endocrinology is a rapidly growing field of study, rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, and lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Vagaborn's national animal is the Cheetah.

Vagaborn is ranked 170,373rd in the world and 7,466th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 161.14 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
