The Republic of Vapia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.074 billion Vapians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 28.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Vapian economy, worth 62.8 trillion Lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is 58,505 Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

More and more students are taking up a career in medicine, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy, and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vapia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Vapia is ranked 55,269th in the world and 132nd in The Wellspring for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,183.95 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
