The Theocracy of Vha is a small, cultured nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic, devout population of 45 million Vhans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The basket case Vhan economy, worth 522 billion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports and Retail. Average income is 11,610 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vha's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vha is ranked 109,486th in the world and 5,222nd in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 31.91 quips per hour.
