The 🌪️cataclysmic catastrophe❄️ of Vando0sa is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Nehelenia with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 22.002 billion youkai are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Law & Order and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serico. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient youkai economy, worth an astonishing 19,932 trillion ceks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 905,926 ceks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The tallest mountains are adorned with roller coasters, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, and military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Vando0sa's national animal is the faerie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Apotheosis of Raideron.

Vando0sa is ranked 294,518th in the world and 175th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Lowest Crime Rates, with 1.45 law-abiding acts per hour.
