The Republic of Vladilan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by - with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 11.277 billion Vladilanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Education, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paris. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Vladilanian economy, worth a remarkable 5,233 trillion francs a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 464,112 francs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,353,886 per year while the poor average 125,713, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

Colonial subjects have Vladilanian culture shoved down their throats, former customs officers are adjusting to their new lives as market stall traders, historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism, and the end of communism came with retail rather than revolution. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Vladilan's national animal is the rat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Vladilan is ranked 8,416th in the world and 5th in Slavija for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 435.91 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
