The Springtime of Vandoosa Funfundvierzig is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lily White with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 17.216 billion Spring faeries are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Warner. The average income tax rate is 66.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Vandoosa Funfundvierzigian economy, worth a remarkable 1,113 trillion Ceks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 64,672 Ceks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon, billions of Ceks are being blown on orbital weapons development, newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, and the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vandoosa Funfundvierzig's national animal is the Faerie, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is May Flowers.

Vandoosa Funfundvierzig is ranked 70,400th in the world and 23rd in Jenny for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 1,640.59 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
