The United Introverts of VW53Aland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by VW53a with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 6.055 billion VW53Alandians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sciroccoville. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient VW53Alandian economy, worth 563 trillion florins a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,120 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Superfoods are often seen as supervillains, television characters who ask how someone's doing are charged with harassment, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. VW53Aland's national animal is the cat-dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Holy wholly.

VW53Aland is ranked 4,374th in the world and 139th in The East Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,405.25 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
