The Kingdom of Vassenor is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Queen Xanthe I with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.057 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 56.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Vassenorian economy, worth 310 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 28,123 Karrens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little 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 146,391st in the world and 4th in The Transgender Region for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -8.49 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
