The Bloodiest Union of Vandermeer is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Fenrir Simonides Vargr with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 916 million Vandermeerians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Soulvin. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Vandermeerian economy, worth 97.8 trillion Soulninits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,800 Soulninits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence, snap elections are called whenever there's a chance to increase Fenrir Simonides Vargr's majority, and environmentalists are advocating slash-and-burn in the nation's forests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vandermeer's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vandermeer is ranked 44,276th in the world and 161st in Refugia for Most Income Equality, scoring 63.03 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
