The Commonwealth of Vauquelin is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.405 billion Vauquelians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Vauquelian economy, worth 54.2 trillion livres a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Soda Sales, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,569 livres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high, dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, Vauquelin's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, and the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vauquelin's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
