The Commonwealth of Vanzeria is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 782 million Vanzerians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saraseen. The average income tax rate is 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Vanzerian economy, worth 54.0 trillion Pencils 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 led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is 69,057 Pencils, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather, in musicals everybody's a little bit racist, and the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vanzeria's national animal is the Red-Eyed Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vanzeria is ranked 177,869th in the world and 7,068th in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 7.52 Obesity Rate.
