LeaderComrade Premier


The Socialist Republic of Vandensia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Comrade Premier with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.022 billion Vandensians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slava. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Vandensian economy, worth 282 trillion eris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 139,477 eris, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, critical thinking is grounds for expulsion from university, the judicial branch is strongly influenced by the Communist Party, and the nation's children are known for being even more apathetic and cynical than their parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Vandensia's national animal is the wolfdog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vandensia is ranked 76,404th in the world and 204th in The Communist Bloc for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 155,086 Standard Monetary Units.
