The Free Lands of Vancouvia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.29 billion Vancouvians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vesuvius. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Vancouvian economy, worth a remarkable 1,989 trillion coves 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. Average income is an amazing 214,186 coves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', ten-year-olds regularly found their own political parties, explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends, and the restriction that you must be over 1.1 metres tall to ride a carnotaurus has recently been waived. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vancouvia's national animal is the wild cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vancouvia is ranked 168,064th in the world and 287th in The Western Isles for Highest Disposable Incomes, with zero Standard Monetary Units.
