The Empire of Vantaria is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by High Technician Leonid Zhirov with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, vat-grown people, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.823 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arakim. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Vantarian economy, worth 814 trillion Kronors a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 213,135 Kronors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, grumbling early morning commuters bemoan having to travel to work in the dark, troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Vantaria's border. 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 162,232nd in the world and 5,461st in Balder for Most Devout, with 1.82 Prayers Per Hour.
