The State of Vogelsburg is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Governor with a fair hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, complete lack of public education, and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic population of 16.112 billion Vogelsburgians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Douglas City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.4%.

The very strong Vogelsburgian economy, worth 609 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 37,845 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 257,303 per year while the poor average 2,033, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Voting is voluntary, Vogelsburg has designated Douglas City as its capital city, and The Governor has just been declared ruler of Vogelsburg in an international press conference. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Vogelsburg's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vogelsburg is ranked 246,805th in the world and 5th in Hesse for Most Patriotic, with 1.3 flags saluted per person per day.
