The Commonwealth of Vardanfel is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Alexander Nisipeanu with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.02 billion Vardanfelians 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Industry, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Vardanfelian economy, worth 115 trillion Septims a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 112,974 Septims, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 345,114 per year while the poor average 28,665, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

The government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake", the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, fat-shaming is now public policy, and strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices. Crime is totally unknown. Vardanfel's national animal is the Giant Dire Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vardanfel is ranked 14,526th in the world and 426th in the South Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 20,685.81 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
