The Empire of Vlan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its frequent executions and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14.915 billion Vlanians 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 relatively small, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.1%.

The thriving Vlanian economy, worth 706 trillion Shekls a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 47,370 Shekls, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

Political activists are routinely executed, Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, military spending is on the increase, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Vlan's national animal is the blackbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Vlan is ranked 13,395th in the world and 1st in Iran for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 7,100.05 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
