The Happy Place of Vanenia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by AGoodBoi with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate population of 5.911 billion Vanenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crouis. The average income tax rate is 87.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vanenian economy, worth 787 trillion smiles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 133,160 smiles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, the freedom to be free is always just out of reach, the working classes live and die on the fields of the farming communes, and faithful allies are always valued. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vanenia's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vanenia is ranked 84,003rd in the world and 109th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,531.1 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
