LeaderOverlord Rex


The Commonwealth of Vanbella is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Overlord Rex with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.987 billion Vanbellans 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry is 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 Novakia. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Vanbellan economy, worth 948 trillion mallards a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 237,912 mallards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description, at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, and the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Vanbella's national animal is the mustang, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Clausewitzism.

Vanbella is ranked 17,994th in the world and 566th in the South Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 316,218 Standard Monetary Units.
