The Kingdom of Vassenor is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Queen Xanthe I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.351 billion Vassenorians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Albertine. The average income tax rate is 56.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Vassenorian economy, worth 268 trillion Karrens a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 25,956 Karrens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids, the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Vassenor's national animal is the Red Squirrel, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Vassenor is ranked 166,302nd in the world and 9th in The Transgender Region for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -11.49 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
