The Holy Empire of The Vangards of Discourse is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Heap Big Boss with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.455 billion Vangards of Discourseans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Vangards of Discoursean economy, worth a remarkable 1,607 trillion Vanfulersens a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 103,980 Vanfulersens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, recognizing the Vangards of Discoursean flag qualifies you for citizenship, imitation is the sincerest form of felony, and skateparks can be found in every city. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Vangards of Discourse's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Vangards of Discourse is ranked 51,285th in the world and 1,565th in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 91.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
