The Kingdom of Western Vapia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Umberto II with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.037 billion Vapians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rovigia. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Vapian economy, worth a remarkable 2,270 trillion Lire a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 376,063 Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Vapian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Western Vapia's radio stations, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and King Umberto II's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Western Vapia's national animal is the Grey Alpine Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Vapian Catholicism.

Western Vapia is ranked 96,997th in the world and 4,135th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 49 on the Rand Index.
