|Capital||Vania Heland City|
The Republic of Vania Heland is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical, humorless population of 2.323 billion Vania Helandians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vania Heland City. The average income tax rate is 55.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Vania Helandian economy, worth 256 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 110,306 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The Ministry of Truthiness now manages the entire media industry, the national water supply has entered detox, religious education is a new government priority, and public nudity is compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vania Heland's national animal is the crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
