The Empire of Vapo is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The true Vapo with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.175 billion Vapoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jolt. The average income tax rate is 88.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Vapoan economy, worth 143 trillion monies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 122,044 monies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every week is blindness awareness week, people are bored of easy crossword puzzles, fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding", and the government defends a woman's right to choose. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vapo's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vapo is ranked 119,167th in the world and 281st in Conch Kingdom for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 7,012.01 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
