The Free Land of Vathnutum is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Bill Gates from Twitter with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.888 billion Vathnutains have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boofoogleton. The average income tax rate is 21.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vathnutumian economy, worth 319 trillion Vathins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 110,516 Vathins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The carcasses of double-deckers can be found littering high streets all around the country, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, and space shuttles are lying silent on the runway till the Space Agency can work out how to fit a creche and a meditation room into their next spacecraft. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vathnutum's national animal is the basilisk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Vathnutum is ranked 69,525th in the world and 3,504th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.64 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
