The Glorious Republic of Vanuzgard is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.181 billion Vanuzgardians 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 Industry, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shokaisho. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vanuzgardian economy, worth 101 trillion Koins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 85,879 Koins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Children deemed 'disorderly' or otherwise unfit for public schools are shipped off to military academies, companies balk at paying their workers, any secret that gets off someone's chest is promptly replaced, and a giant 'No Entry' sign is being erected at the borders of Vanuzgard. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vanuzgard's national animal is the Silver Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Chūmon.

Vanuzgard is ranked 109,083rd in the world and 54th in Far East Oriental Federation for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring zero on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
