The Free Lands of Vancouvia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its parental licensing program, otherworldly petting zoo, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.012 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 2,168 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 216,566 coves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Frat-house partying has become the national pastime, government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary, ship captains always order a return to port at the slightest sign of rain, and vital intelligence-gathering activities are often put on hold for Call of Honor tournaments. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 12,563rd in the world and 25th in The Western Isles for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 7,892.94 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
