The Old Country of Vanavoy is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Stanislas Abel with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, strictly enforced bedtime, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 8.495 billion Vanavoyans 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wännerstadt. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.6%.

The powerhouse Vanavoyan economy, worth 817 trillion credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,276 credits, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

It's considered a civil right to be allowed to neglect and mistreat your own children, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, women who leak pus from infected wounds are told to suck it up, and park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Vanavoy's national animal is the Lamb, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Vanavoy is ranked 37,989th in the world and 16th in APSIA for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 66.62 Effective Tax Rate.
