The 🌀 Malevolent Catastrophe ⚡ of Vando0sa is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sergeant Major Ozoi with an iron fist, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 13.722 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. 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 a remarkable 8,406 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. 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 612,619 Ceks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rocket boots and thermal detonators have become standard-issue military gear, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, and children are raised bilingual from an early age. 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 Cult of Shvonkism.

Vando0sa is ranked 209,349th in the world and 544th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Safest, scoring 1.78 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
