The Region Snatcher of Vandoosa Achtundvierzig is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Hatate Himekaidou with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 17.251 billion crow tengus are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Welfare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Windira. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 47.0%.

The powerhouse Vandoosa Achtundvierzigian economy, worth a remarkable 1,566 trillion Ceks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 90,827 Ceks, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon, the country is preparing for war, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Cek battlesuits, and handsome young men are forced into uniforms by their dominant elders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vandoosa Achtundvierzig's national animal is the Faerie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Finger Counting.

Vandoosa Achtundvierzig is ranked 74,378th in the world and 34th in Jenny for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,006.08 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
