The Kingdom of Vdara is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by currently being elected with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.485 billion Vdarans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chania. The average income tax rate is 33.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Vdaran economy, worth 352 trillion euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is 64,345 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, the government has enacted freedom of information, children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, and getting an abortion takes less hassle than writing a letter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vdara's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Vdaran Orthodox.

Vdara is ranked 40,672nd in the world and 30th in Esportiva for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 1,648.97 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
