The Commonwealth of Vanbella is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Overlord Rex with an iron fist, and notable for its hatred of cheese, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.748 billion Vanbellans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novakia. The average income tax rate is 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vanbellan economy, worth 906 trillion mallards a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 241,973 mallards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description, at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, and the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Vanbella's national animal is the mustang, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Clausewitzism.

Vanbella is ranked 17,512th in the world and 559th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 7,923.91 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
