The Holy Red of Vardanfel is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alexander Nisipeanu with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.221 billion Vardanfelians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel. The average income tax rate is 38.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vardanfelian economy, worth 150 trillion Septims a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 123,319 Septims, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations, and all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers. Crime is totally unknown. Vardanfel's national animal is the Giant Dire Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vardanfel is ranked 87,603rd in the world and 2,782nd in the South Pacific for Most Average, scoring 39.37 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
