The People's Republic of Vas Normandy is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Commander Ron Pal with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 24.615 billion Vas Normandyians 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, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krastanza. The average income tax rate is 55.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vas Normandyian economy, worth a remarkable 5,131 trillion Belkas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 208,456 Belkas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Vas Normandyian politicians, Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Vas Normandy as a reminder of their "special relationship", there is a law against "filthy foreign food", and the army is spending millions cloning khaki-colored dinosaurs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Vas Normandy's national animal is the Aigaion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The McKenna.

Vas Normandy is ranked 3,928th in the world and 110th in the Rejected Realms for Longest Average Lifespans, with 93.21 years.
