The Federal Democratic Republic of Vancovaria is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by YK Milton with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.359 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 average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Vancovarian economy, worth a remarkable 6,126 trillion vaneroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 333,704 vaneroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, referenda are held for every conceivable government action, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. Crime is totally unknown. Vancovaria's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vancovaria is ranked 11,795th in the world and 4th in The Social Liberal Union for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 371,874 Standard Monetary Units.
