The Free Land of Vaeringjar is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 173 million garthars are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 61.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Vaeringjarian economy, worth 5.86 trillion eyrirs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Average income is 33,869 eyrirs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, the government loves seeing the little people fight, cancer rates amongst the richest in society are inexplicably on the rise, and the right to a fair trial was recently abolished for reasons of convenience. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vaeringjar's national animal is the hrafn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vaeringjar is ranked 63,156th in the world and 3,214th in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 67.03 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
