The Empire of Vangaziland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Helios Vang with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 10.376 billion Vangazis 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emeros. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Vangazilandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,562 trillion Gazis a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 246,964 Gazis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In musicals everybody's a little bit racist, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, and cub scouts are being asked to hand in their woggles as the state withdraws funding for scouting. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vangaziland's national animal is the Vannish lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vangaziland is ranked 160,060th in the world and 70th in Esportiva for Most Primitive, scoring -612.06 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
