The Endorse the Atlae Isles of VW53Aland is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by VW53a with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 6.724 billion VW53Alandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sciroccoville. The average income tax rate is 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient VW53Alandian economy, worth 641 trillion florins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,389 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The official VW53Alandian Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, passive-aggressive congratulations cards inform mums-to-be that their pregnancy is their greatest achievement in life, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and the treehouse in Cat-dragon Park is the tallest building in VW53Aland. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. VW53Aland's national animal is the cat-dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Holy wholly.

VW53Aland is ranked 32,919th in the world and 1,250th in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 4,743.22 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
