The Commonwealth of Vanbella is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Overlord Rex with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.741 billion Vanbellans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novakia. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vanbellan economy, worth 899 trillion mallards a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 240,574 mallards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description, at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, and the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Vanbella's national animal is the mustang, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Clausewitzism.

Vanbella is ranked 9,003rd in the world and 244th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,452.98 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
