The Grand Duchy of Vachia is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 358 million Vachians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gransteir. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.5%.
The powerhouse Vachian economy, worth 30.8 trillion Casters a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 86,084 Casters, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Vachia's national animal is the Golden eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.
