The Free Imperial Republic of Vectrova is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by SoaD with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, lack of airports, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 28.26 billion Vectrovans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grandville. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Vectrovan economy, worth an astonishing 10,458 trillion velts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 370,080 velts, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,312,282 per year while the poor average 75,284, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Parole board directors light up a joint before telling hash-brownie baking grannies that they have to stay behind bars, the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, the carbon footprint falls along with the human footprint during war, and EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vectrova's national animal is the gingerbread man, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Shadism.

Vectrova is ranked 1,776th in the world and 59th in the Rejected Realms for Most Armed, with 15.07 Weapons Per Person.
