The Soft and Squeaky Nation of Vand0osa is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lilly Zaiveria with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, public floggings, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 10.907 billion Raiders are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serico. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Vand0osan economy, worth a remarkable 1,021 trillion Monies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,700 Monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Nudity is frowned upon, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, this year's hottest seller is plenary indulgence, and delivery truck companies use hospital parking lots to store 16-wheelers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vand0osa's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Free Thought.

Vand0osa is ranked 169,561st in the world and 6th in Free Thought for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 49.36 Whatever.
