The Dominion of Vedan 02 is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 3.058 billion Vedan 02ians 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 50.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Vedan 02ian economy, worth 121 trillion guilders a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,569 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, the typical murderer weighs 150kg and has hairy arms, and the minority party is vilified for everything from fires to earthquakes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vedan 02's national animal is the parrot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Vedan 02 is ranked 211,467th in the world and 1st in Mercenaries R Us for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 37.52 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
