The Territory of Vorlox Seventeen is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Lennie Bensi with an even hand, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, infamous sell-swords, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 8.731 billion Vorlox Seventeenians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Industry, with Defense, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marevan Thirty-Six. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Vorlox Seventeenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,752 trillion Vorlox Florgons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 315,287 Vorlox Florgons, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,859,223 per year while the poor average 4,063, a ratio of 703 to 1.

The Hanging Gardens account for half of Marevan Thirty-Six's water use, perverts across the land rejoice after 'sexual harassment' was recently renamed 'persuasive courting', the restriction that you must be over 1.1 metres tall to ride a carnotaurus has recently been waived, and edutainment video games are taking Vorlox Seventeen's students to the next level. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Vorlox Seventeen's national animal is the spider beagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Abstract Fluidism.

Vorlox Seventeen is ranked 2,714th in the world and 85th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 16,455.25 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
