Gothic Vandelia

Population4.956 billion

LeaderJohn Kaiser


The Machiavellian State of Gothic Vandelia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by John Kaiser with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.956 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, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Deep13. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 89.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Gothic Vandelian economy, worth a remarkable 2,426 trillion Rand a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 489,577 Rand, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,732,947 per year while the poor average 99,863, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

The mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, children are seen fighting in the playground for bread scraps that fall out of diamond-encrusted lunchboxes, military officers are given medals for disobeying orders, and a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high. 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 9,617th in the world and 15th in Novus Lucidum for Highest Poor Incomes, with 99,864 Standard Monetary Units.
