The Republican Union of Vaquas is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Ashton Kartwright with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.195 billion Vaquisians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vaqua City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Vaquisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,915 trillion Vaquinis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 208,341 Vaquinis, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 878,447 per year while the poor average 32,017, a ratio of 27.4 to 1.

The government is spending millions on 'trust campaigns' in an effort to win back the public's support, officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional, and the latest "must-have" uPhone is 1/4 mm thinner than last year's uPhone. Crime is totally unknown. Vaquas's national animal is the White Rhinoceros, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Vaquas is ranked 5,603rd in the world and 29th in Gay for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 79.93 Workforce Participation Rate.
