The Independent Nation of Vulturret II is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Constitutional Government of Balder with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, frequent executions, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.976 billion Balderans 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 Nordic Square. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.7%.

The very strong Balderan economy, worth 125 trillion Balderan Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 63,391 Balderan Credits, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

The newest shade developed by Vulturret II's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange', former arms manufacturing CEOs are now delivering food for minimum wage, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, and a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vulturret II's national animal is the Soaring Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Independence.

Vulturret II is ranked 40,725th in the world and 1,556th in Balder for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 4,046.95 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
