The 🌸 Theory of Happiness 🌸 of Vrolondia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Arano Iandra with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 24.494 billion Geldi enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ismair. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Geldi economy, worth a remarkable 1,705 trillion Elysiums a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 69,617 Elysiums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Decreased demand for toilets is saving the prison service a lot of money, the tightness of border controls in Vrolondia leave a little to be desired, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, and Max Barry finally has time for writing books after NationStates was recently outlawed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vrolondia's national animal is the flying jellyfish🎐, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Vrolondian Pantheon.

Vrolondia is ranked 207,345th in the world and 31st in Valhalla for Most Armed, with 0.19 Weapons Per Person.
