The Free Territory of Vanam is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Presiding Speaker Joe with a fair hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.671 billion Vanamians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vanam City. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Vanamian economy, worth 222 trillion Labor Vouchers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 83,372 Labor Vouchers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it. Crime is totally unknown. Vanam's national animal is the Octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Vanam is ranked 202,825th in the world and 95th in Anarchy for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -13.42 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
