The Commonwealth of Vardanfel is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Alexander Nisipeanu with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.454 billion Vardanfelians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel. The average income tax rate is 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vardanfelian economy, worth 405 trillion Septims a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 165,149 Septims, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, board shorts have replaced board rooms, couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', and psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vardanfel's national animal is the Giant Dire Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Vardanfel is ranked 9,331st in the world and 300th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 11,204.85 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
