The Dominion of Vodeo is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Victoria Stobie with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.907 billion Vodeans 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saviso. The average income tax rate is 60.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vodean economy, worth 272 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 142,847 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, the endangered saltwater humpback numbat is only seen in captivity programs, and Maxtopian villagers starve by the time Vodean officials even file the appropriate paperwork needed to help them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vodeo's national animal is the numbat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vodeo is ranked 40,644th in the world and 1,356th in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 706.5 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
