Gothic Vandelia

Population7.047 billion

LeaderJohn Kaiser


The Machiavellian State of Gothic Vandelia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by John Kaiser with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.047 billion Gothic Vandelians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Deep13. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Gothic Vandelian economy, worth a remarkable 3,880 trillion Rand a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is a breathtaking 550,714 Rand, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Gothic Vandelian politicians, in a desperate bid for cheap airfare Gothic Vandelians can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying, and John Kaiser's Dreadnought-class tankbuster limousine is said to have more ammunition than the entire Brancalandian Army. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Gothic Vandelia's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Norse.

Gothic Vandelia is ranked 45,039th in the world and 19th in The Wolf Clan for Largest Populations, with 7.05 billion Capita.
