The Free Lands of Vancouvia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.38 billion Vancouvians 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vesuvius. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Vancouvian economy, worth a remarkable 3,095 trillion coves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 215,260 coves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, the Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers, prospective parents are cheering on the streets as they no longer need a license to have children, and Leader's Twitcher account is typically used to share wild cow memes rather than government policy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vancouvia's national animal is the wild cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vancouvia is ranked 1,515th in the world and 5th in The Western Isles for Lowest Crime Rates, with 142.88 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
