The Protectorate of Vannellein is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed population of 477 million Vannelleinians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 48.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Vannelleinian economy, worth 21.0 trillion Vals a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 44,119 Vals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Hanging Gardens account for half of Vannellein City's water use, children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, lonely people are supposed to be cheered up by the many parties that they are never invited to, and 13-year-old internet trolls are treated as a threat on par with terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vannellein's national animal is the Dire Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Vannellein is ranked 76,265th in the world and 17th in The Concord of Nations for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,090.27 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
