The People's Republic of Vas Normandy is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Commander Ron Pal with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 20.139 billion Vas Normandyians 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, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krastanza. The average income tax rate is 34.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vas Normandyian economy, worth a remarkable 4,064 trillion Belkas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 201,834 Belkas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign converts are illuminated by both missionaries and helicopter searchlights, the road to capitalism has proved an epic drama of adventure and exploration, male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness', and third world countries are rich in "I Love Krastanza" t-shirts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Vas Normandy's national animal is the Aigaion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The McKenna.

Vas Normandy is ranked 89,299th in the world and 2,355th in the Rejected Realms for Most Average, scoring 39.16 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
