The Federal Democratic Republic of Vancovaria is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by YK Milton with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.815 billion Vancovarians 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 medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vancopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Vancovarian economy, worth a remarkable 7,506 trillion vaneroes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 360,647 vaneroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, YK Milton's webseries about the alleged hauntings of Vancopolis generates millions of views, and cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates. Crime is totally unknown. Vancovaria's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vancovaria is ranked 274,097th in the world and 207th in The Social Liberal Union for Most Patriotic, with 0.21 flags saluted per person per day.
