The 🌧️⚡🌪️ Raging Summer ☀️🔥 of Vando0sa is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Sergeant Major Ozoi with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 15.83 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 receive no funds. 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 10,961 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, Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. 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 692,445 ceks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People can get away with murder these days, soldiers stream their classified military operations live for millions of fans, the carbon footprint falls along with the human footprint during war, and the VBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays. 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 57th in the world and 1st in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 150,011.42 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
