Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Vantompia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Van Gaffney with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.034 billion Vantompians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vanville. The average income tax rate is 79.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vantompian economy, worth 101 trillion Meds a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,717 Meds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and fruit pickers with degrees in Tree Frog psychology are a common sight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vantompia's national animal is the Tree Frog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vantompia is ranked 142,889th in the world and 7,140th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.13 Weapons Per Person.
