Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Vantaria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by High Technician Leonid Zhirov with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 2.295 billion Vantarians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arakim. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Vantarian economy, worth 476 trillion Kronors a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 207,838 Kronors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', and scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Lynx. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vantaria's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Vantaria is ranked 148,533rd in the world and 7,431st in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -22.93 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
