The Empire of Vodea is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, zero percent divorce rate, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 509 million Vodeans 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maartep. The average income tax rate is 42.4%.

The very strong Vodean economy, worth 34.7 trillion Diaris a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 68,254 Diaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

It's best to decline if Leader offers to buy a round of drinks, midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and citizens have to identify all the polar bears in a blizzard photo in order to access their bank account. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vodea's national animal is the Royal Vodean Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Vodea is ranked 78,906th in the world and 3,219th in The North Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 3.63 bananas ingested per day.
