The Constitutional Empire of Vandario is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Háttsettur Rigvald Vinterjern with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, devout population of 10.103 billion Vannish have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skoravik. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Vannish economy, worth a remarkable 2,812 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 278,368 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

More money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, ghost regiments exist only on paper, owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, and foreign leaders never seem to want to shake hands with Háttsettur Rigvald Vinterjern. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vandario's national animal is the Great Grey Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sed Förfader.

Vandario is ranked 10,372nd in the world and 2nd in Austnara for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 5,464.96 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
