The Theocracy of Vendellamoore is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 405 million Vendellamooreans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Presbyterian City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.5%.

The thriving Vendellamoorean economy, worth 27.0 trillion Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 66,564 Marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 262,465 per year while the poor average 11,443, a ratio of 22.9 to 1.

Park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, women wearing male lounge-wear are quizzed for hours by mental health practitioners, Vendellamoore has designated Presbyterian City as its capital city, and decaying farm hamlets have twice the representation of major urban areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vendellamoore's national animal is the Dove.

Vendellamoore is ranked 24,612th in the world and 992nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Pro-Market, scoring 71.44 on the Rand Index.
